This wine cellar, a pioneer in Ribera del Duero, began activities in 1980, when three brothers, Benjamín, Manuel and Adolfo Pérez Pascuas, convinced of the excellent potential that lay in the vineyards owned by their father, Mauro, decided to initiate an ambitious project: to make one of the best wines in Spain and to carve a niche for it in the international marketplace.
This is a family cellar wich has focused on quality from its very beginnings, with much hard work and intense dedication. Currently, 500.000 bottles are produced yearly and this limited production allows for strict controls of the whole winemaking process from its very beginning.
The cellar owns 120 Hectares of vineyards: 90% Tinta del País and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Today, "CEPA GAVILÁN ", "VIÑA PEDROSA" and "PEREZ PASCUAS"-GRAN SELECCIÓN- are exported to over 30 countries, accounting for 40% of production.
BODEGAS PEREZ PASCUAS is an example of a well-consolidated, serious cellar that has always distinguished itself by maintaining an irreproachable regularity in its wines year after year.
Mauro Pérez was born among the vines of Pedrosa de Duero, a farmer full of wisdom and love for his land, he planted and tilled the vineyards which today are the source of wines with unique characteristics:
"CEPA GAVILÁN", "VIÑA PEDROSA" and "PEREZ PASCUAS"- GRAN SELECCIÓN.
Pedrosa and Pérez Pascuas are the most commonly mentioned "P words" in conversations about wine from the Castilian region of Spain.
The quiet Pedrosa de Duero has become synonymous with Pérez Pascuas, the surnames of the town's most cherished sons: Benjamin, Manuel and Adolfo. These brothers have inherited a sense of brotherhood with the land that gives them grapes, the fruit of years of hard work.
The Pérez Pascuas family maintain a daily relationship, motivated by love, with its vineyars.
The result is one of the best wines made in the region of Ribera del Duero.
