Raúl Pérez & Niepoort Calderera Tinto is made in the D.O. Bierzo, specifically in the town of Valtuille de Abajo, León.
Raúl Pérez, from Bierzo, and Dirk Niepoort, from Douro, have collaborated to make wines in different regions. This time Dirk has travelled to Bierzo to make the Calderera wine.
Raúl Pérez & Niepoort Calderera Tinto is made with the Mencía grape from areas mainly made up of slate, but also from vineyards on sandy soils. Production is carried out in a way that preserves the fruit, without an excessive contribution of the method.
