Raúl Pérez and Marta Ramas
Technical management. Our winemakers.
Raúl Pérez is one of the greatest international winemakers. He makes his wines in several countries, including South Africa, Argentina and Spain, but primarily in Leon, where we are located. He has received numerous awards and accolades throughout his career, such as in Shanghai in 2015, where he was recognised as the world's best winemaker. Raúl considers that, thanks to its hundred-year-old wine-making tradition, its location and its climate, our area on the banks of the river Jamuz offers the opportunity to make great wines that are unmistakeable, innovative and personal, that maintain the respect and character of this distinctive part of Spain's geography.
Marta Ramas, a tireless traveller, has spent the majority of her professional career outside of Spain. She trained in Bordeaux, where she obtained a National Diploma of Oenology (DNO). She also spent five years working there at various Grand Cru Classés in Sauternes, Saint-Émilion and Pessac-Leógnan. After this experience in France, she completed her international training at prestigious wineries in Hawkes Bay (New Zealand), Napa Valley (California, USA) and South Africa. She returned to Spain in 2013 to apply her extensive experience in the development of several projects.
From a family of biologists dedicated to nature, Alberto has combined his work in the family plant nurseries with organising different wine bars that he owned. Thanks to training and tradition, he has a deep respect for nature and is a staunch defender of organic farming.
José is in charge of the winery and the wines, giving them every day the mime and affection that any good wine requires.
The invaluable assistant.
With her unfailing good humour and energy, Emiliana looks after the facilities and lends a hand with anything needed to make our wine.
Ana worries about all the administrative tasks – of which there are many – so that we don't have to.
María José Galera y Miguel Ángel Alonso
Miguel Ángel comes from a French-Leonese family that has had a traditional winery since the early 20th century. He has a deep love for wine and admiration for the work and respect for terroir of many French vine growers, principles he painstakingly applies to his vines. Together with his wife María José, who comes from a scientific background and is very organised, they set out on this project with the desire to promote indigenous varieties from the Leon region.
Kiru y Lea
Inseparable companions, friends, affectionate; they are members of the family. Lea is characterised by her great selection ability during harvest. She knows how to recognise the tastiest grapes from among those that have been discarded, to give her taste buds a treat.
