Botellas-Bodegas-Peique_low_2.jpgYou can find Bodegas Peique on the hillside of Castro de la Ventosa, established in the old Bergidum Flavium, the pre-roman city from which El Bierzo got its name. The Peique family decided in 1999 that it was the perfect moment to make public their project; the third generation of the family, Jorge, Mar and Luis started working together and since then they have battled to introduce their wines to local and international markets.
