Characteristics of El Pecado

El Pecado is a wine made by the great Raul Perez, who has become one of the most renowned wine makers in Spain for his wise appreciation of the Mencia grape variety, producing great wines of limited production.

Raúl Pérez makes wines in different areas and in collaboration with different wineries. El Pecado is made in the Guímaro cellar, a small family winery located in the Ribeira Sacra, using both the grape and the facilities of this winery. It is a single variety of Mencia from vines 100 years old, planted on a steep terraces in the canyon of the river Sil on slate soils and granite. The harvest is done manually and the winemaking is done traditionally. The grapes are trodden and fermentation local yeasts from the vineyard itself is carried out before the wine is aged for a year in oak barrels. El Pecado is one of the flagship wines of Raúl Pérez, a wonderful Mencia that, after several vintages with an excellent reception from critics, is poised to become one of the great Spanish wines.

Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Winery Raúl Pérez

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.

Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture. He is also a consultant, apart from an oenologist and the most popular producer of unique wines in Spain. His name is known by a lot of good enthusiasts, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker. However, his labels are produced in very small quantities, which makes his wine quite hard to find. He makes his own wines, wines for others and in collaboration with other people. He participates in family projects and other formal and informal ones. He breaks the rules, reaching the limits. He sometimes crosses the line and even crosses borders ... Not bad considering he wanted to become a doctor! Raúl Pérez Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture.
