Luis Gutiérrez, famed wine critic based in Spain, says of him that “Raúl is a free spirit, he does and doesn’t do, he goes from place to place, he doesn’t stop inventing, he doesn’t stop creating, he doesn’t stop tasting, he changes and changes again and again…”
The living legend that is Raúl Pérez hails from the northwestern corner of Spain in the small region of Bierzo, and while he makes lovely wine close to home, he values collaboration as much he values his grapes! Atalier is a project Raúl has embarked on with friends in the Galicia, home of the peachy and refreshingly salty variety Albariño. Raúl and friends found nearly 100 year old vines and use super traditional techniques to create an ode to this lovely grape. “A Cruz de Ánimas” refers to “the crossroads of souls” - no doubt a poetic nod to this winemaker’s drive to band together with like minded friends to create the best wines around.
