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.
