Cesar Marquez did not just stumbled upon the Bierzo wine region. In fact, Marquez hails from a family with deep roots in the region. Cesar's focus is mainly on micro-vinifications of old vine Godello and Mencia from small plots.
The term "Parajes" stands for single vineyard and it does justice to what the wine is, a very small production of under 4,000 bottles each year from a tiny plot of 1.8 hectares. The wine undergoes 12 months of barrel aging before being bottled without filtration.
Parajes by Cesar Marquez showcases vivrant and fresh characters of red and blackberries. A diverse charcuterie platter would go along just perfectly with this wine.
