Description: César Marquez Perez has deep roots in Bierzo. His family founded the Castro Ventosa winery in 1752 and they still own it today. Thanks to that long history, he has access to many of the top sites in the region. He has grown up in the vines and wineries in Bierzo and has learned from his elders, including his uncle Raul Perez. He is a part of the new wave of Spanish vignerons who have a knowledge of the greater world of wine and also a respect for and connection to the land around him. Cesar’s focus is mainly on micro-vinifications of old-vine Godello from parajes (small plots). The wine is yellow-straw in color with concentrated aromas of ripe pear, honeysuckle, white flowers and subtle nuttiness and bee's wax. Medium to full-bodied with good tension, and creaminess on the palate.
Food pairing: Roasted chicken, chicken piccata, mashed potatoes, stuffed pasta, seafood, lobster, roasted vegetables, goat cheeses (Feta), salads, tapas, risotto, paella, lemon veal, etc.
