Ultreia Cova de la Raposa is a red wine produced by Raúl Pérez in Valtuille de Abajo, León, in the D.O. Bierzo.

Raúl Pérez is a pioneer of both the Bierzo region as well as the Mencía grape variety. Born in Valtuille, he took the reins of the family winery where he began a meteoric career in the wine world, later becoming an advisor to wineries across the globe.

The wine Ultreia Cova de la Raposa comes from a single plot of pre phylloxera vines, planted princely with the Mencia variety (85%), as well as Garnacha Tintorera, Bastardo and others. The vineyard is south-facing and grown on sandy-limestone soils.

Ultreia Cova de la Raposa ferments in (500litre) barrels in whole clusters with its own yeasts, and left to macerate for 90 days. It is then decanted and left to age for 20 months in French oak barrels.

An exceptional vineyard, a long maceration with the skins and a subsequent aging make it a full complex red wine. Only 500 bottles a year are produced from this large plot.

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.

Pictures and situation Raúl Pérez
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.
