Pizarras de Otero is a monovarietal Mencía red wine produced in Bierzo by Bodega Cuatro Pasos.

Bodega Cuatro Pasos is a winery in Bierzo created in 2003 by Bodegas Martín Códax, from Pontevedra.

Pizarras de Otero is harvested manually into 20 kg boxes. Once in the winery, the grapes go through sorting tables and then a cold pre-fermentation maceration at 10 ºC to extract and preserve the fruity aromas of the variety. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are performed in stainless steel tanks. In the end, it is clarified and bottled.

Pizarras de Otero is a varietal wine, a good expression of the young Mencia, prepared without barrel-ageing. A fresh and fruity wine with mineral touches, which demonstrates perfectly what the variety has to offer.

Cuatro Pasos is the project of Martín Códax (Cambados, D.O. Rías Baixas) in the lands of El Bierzo. After years of effort, considerable investments and challenging decisions, Martín Códax has demonstrated that he not only has a sixth sense when it comes to forecasting new trends in the wine market but also that he knows how to execute them with perfect mastery. Bodegas Cuatro Pasos is a clear bet for an area of ​​great oenological interest, El Bierzo, conceived under the philosophy of empowering the identity of the terroir, as well as the personality and the quality of the native variety, Mencía.
Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
