El Rapolao is a red wine from Bierzo produced by the Raul Perez winery. The winery is located in Villafranca del Bierzo, in the province of León.

The grapes come from vineyards planted on soils rich in clay and iron, facing north, located on the grounds of Valtuille de Abajo.

Regarding its preparation, El Rapolao undergoes fermentation in wood vats of 5000l. After this process, the wine is aged for 12 months in sycamore oak barrels.

La Vizcaína de Vinos is a relatively new project by the multifaceted winegrower and oenologist Raúl Pérez in his homeland: El Bierzo. He started and executed this project with his nephews, César Márquez and Nerea Pérez, the latter tragically deceased during the vintage of 2014. Raúl is a viticulture philosopher. He is also a consultant, as well as an oenologist, and he is the creator of genuine wines. All in all, quite a renown figure in our country. His name is on the lips of many good aficionados, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker, although his labels are produced in quantities that seem more virtual than real.
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.
