Bodegas y Vinedos Raul Perez

Raúl Pérez is one of the world's most visionary winemakers. No one deserves more credit for the explosion of unique and delicious terroir-driven wines that are coming out of Spain. While Raúl has projects all over the country, perhaps his most intriguing wines come from what is one of the world's most exciting wine appellations, his native Bierzo. Born in the small village of Valtuille de Abajo into a winemaking family, Raul has brought fame and recognition to this once overlooked region.

That fame and influence has a lot to do with his open door policy towards new arrivals in Bierzo. Prominent names like Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo Pérez or Cádiz-born Verónica Ortega did their first fermentations there. He also helped many established names in Galicia like Forjas del Salnés in Rías Baixas and Algueira and Guímaro in Ribeira Sacra and he’s even found time to collaborate with other wine world star like Portugal's Dirk Niepoort and France's Antoine Graillot.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

"The truly impressive 2018 Ultreia Saint Jacques transcends its price category. They destemmed more grapes because they fermented it in the oak vats they bought from Vega Sicilia to use in the new winery, where it macerated for two months and then matured in used barrels for nine to 10 months. The secret is to use very good grapes from very good vineyards. The wine is clean, precise and fresh, and the oak is super-subtle, almost unnoticeable. The palate reflects a fluid wine of pleasure, a red of thirst. This is the wine where they have invested more, and 2018 has to be the finest vintage to date. It was bottled in October/November 2019."
