You can find PEIQUE WINERY on the hillside of Castro de la Ventosa, established in the old Bergidum Flavium, the pre-roman city from which El Bierzo got its name. The Peique family decided in 1999 that it was the perfect moment to make public their project; the third generation of the family, Jorge, Mar and Luis started working together and since then they have battled to introduce their wines to international markets.
Jorge who is the oenologist of BODEGAS PEIQUE, tells us how all the effort is made worthwhile when you see a bottle of their family’s wine on the table next to you in a restaurant.

It is nice to see how people enjoy the fruit of so many hours of work. That is why they have to continue learning, offering smooth and easy to drink wine, and see how the market evaluates them every year. Their wines comes from small plots of vines of over 60 years old, worked by hand and located on sandy and clayey slopes. In PEIQUE WINERY everyone has something to say, starting with the grandparents who watch closely the process and ending with the granddaughters who come at the grape harvest. One thing leads to another.
