"The goal is to make wines that I like and that I feel people can enjoy from El Bierzo.”
“Things have to be spaced out in the right way with patience if you want to do it right. And this works. Nothing happens overnight. Persistence, dedication and patience are key.”
César Márquez is part of a wave of young Spanish winemakers who has deep roots to the land stemming from a long family tradition of connection to the vines. His focus is locating and vinifying singular parcels to interpret the terruño of the godello and mencía varietals.
He launched his solo project in 2015 with 4 wines. Each has a different expression based on their soils, altitudes and expositions. The wines showcase the enormous potential for great wines from Bierzo.
