Ideal to accompany grilled meats or vegetables, pastas or hard cheeses.

The Producer

In the early 1950s, Don Juan Munoz-Lopez arrived from Andalucia to farm grapevines. Work has always been more important than recognition and the land and unique terroir make everything worth the effort.

In 2004, his sons decided to build a winery to produce high-quality wines with great fascination for innovation. In April that same year, they founded Las Perdices in the heart of their vineyard in Agrelo where they grew up and learned how to make wine.

The winery holds a capacity of 1,200,000 litres in stainless steel tanks of various capacities in order to optimize processes and better distribute their finest products.
