Cesar Marquez is from the legendary Perez family who have been making wine in this region for centuries. His own project focuses on super-old vines and making terroir-specific wines from different parcels.

 I often describe the Mencia grape as a Spanish take on Pinot Noir but here it is slightly more fuller-bodied and the fruit is a little more like plums and cherry than strawberry. The wine has some beautiful aromatics, its floral, very elegant with those plum and cherry notes in the foreground. Theres a bit of spice, lovely freshness, and a velvet-like texture on the palate.

The grapes for this wine come from eighty-year-old vines in the village of Valtuille where there is a high sandstone content in the soil. According to Cesar this gives freshness and a floral side to the wines compared to his vineyards on schist and granite where the tannins are more powerful and the wine has more structure.

  • Great service and excellent wines

    Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.

  • Super-speedy delivery

    Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.

  • I placed my order online from…Melbourne

    I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars

  • Nice wine. Easy and efficient

    Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
