Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

La del Vivo is a white wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by Raúl Pérez with La Vizcaína de Vinos. This is a single variety wine made with the Godello grape variety.

The microclimate of the region is ideal for the cultivation of vines: soft, with moderate temperatures, with a constant level of humidity. The climate is similar to that of Galicia, although drier, in this respect it is closer to the climate in the region of Castilla.

The grapes used to produce this wine come from the municipality of Lomas de Valtuille. La del Vivo undergoes fermentation and is then aged for 12 months in the same second year oak barrels where fermentation took place.

Raúl Pérez is perhaps one of Spain’s most renowned winemakers. After beginning his career at the family winery, Castro Ventosa, he set his own career path and embarked on numerous projects. Highly praised by the American critic Robert Parker, he always offers wines that are full of surprises. All of them, without a doubt, are very impressive.

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.
