Villegas is one of the vineyards Perez’ finest vineyards.  The vineyard, planted in 1890, is mostly sand with granite bedrock, and mostly Mencia with some Garnacha Tintorera and a bit of Bastardo. The exposure and the lightness of the soils produces a wine of elegance and finesse.

96+ pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate (Luis Gutierrez)
The Vino de Paraje 2019 Valtuille Villegas comes from a plot by Raúl Pérez's house in the outskirts of Valtuille, so a single-vineyard bottling that might qualify for such category after five years of traceability. The plot has more sand and very old vines and is a shadowed zone. The wine fermented with 100% full clusters in oak vats and matured in used 500-liter oak barrels. It has the finesse and perfume of the sandy soils, elegant and fresh, with very fine-grained tannins. 1,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021.
