Pico Ferreira is a wine from a parcel located in a place that does justice to its name. This wine, as the producer's other wines, aims to represent the place intervening as little as possible in it, respecting the traditional winemaking methods.
Complex, elegant and fresh wine, the aromas of ripe red fruits with very subtle toasted notes stand out. In the mouth you can feel the mineral notes, it is complex, elegant, with fine tannins and long finish.

Winemaking The winemaking process begins with the grapes harvested by hand and left to ferment in open vats for 24 days, with 30% of the grapes being whole.
The grapes are gently trodden with the feet so that part of the grapes remain whole during fermentation, which is carried out spontaneously by the yeast itself without the addition of any other yeast.

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.
