  • An esteemed winemaker with more than 200 labels listed on Robert Parker’s Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Raúl Pérez has had his hands in projects from Castro Ventosa, his family vineyard in Bierzo, Spain to Portugal (Dirk Niepport) and all the way South Africa (Eben Sadie). Pérez’ philosophy is that of a minimal interventionist winemaker, often with very limited productions that are laser-focused on native varietals; often also endangered.

He has been a pioneer in practices such as early-harvesting, whole cluster fermentation and extended vatting, generally an approach searching to express the character of Mencía in the terroir of Bierzo.

  • 🍎🦃Don’t forget about Cider for Thanksgiving! In a @goodhousekeeping taste test, “apple juice for grown-ups” was the drink of choice. @cidreslebrun & @dunkertonscider are in our portfolio! 
Light, crisp, refreshing, less filling than beer and gluten-free, too! 
Established in 1955, Le Brun practices traditional natural fermentation from hand-picked apples. After picking, the fruit is aged in special wooden cases for ~3 weeks prior to crushing to slightly dehydrate the fruit and concentrate its aromas.

Dunkerton’s uses Celtic varieties of fruit that are centuries old, crafting heritage style, organic ciders.
