César Marquez has his roots in the Bierzo region. He decided to start his promising career as a vigneron after working for seven years alongside his uncle, Raúl Perz, in the Castro Ventosa winery to show his Burgundian identity and style, producing high-quality wines. He carries the knowledge of a family tradition in wine production and wine culture. His heritage is respect for the relationship between nature and vine and viticulture and oenology. Its wines reflect the identity of the Bierzo, particularly of Valtuille. Most vineyards are old vines planted in soils dominated by slate and clay. Their wines ferment spontaneously in wooden vats.
