As a Bordeaux native, Gregory Pérez’s career launched with Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste. He also worked at Château Cos d’Estournel during and after his studies at the Bordeaux-Blanquefort School of Enology and Viticulture between 1997 and 2000. Pérez went to Bierzo in Spain where he worked for several years before establishing Mengoba in 2007. Mengoba's steeply sloped vineyards are situated at the head of River Cúa in the town of Espanillo ranging from 600 to 850 meters above sea level. Perez vinifies in a non-interventionist manner that seeks respect and sustainability of the vineyard. ‘Flor de Brezo’ is a blend of Mencía and Alicante Bouschet from 35 years old vines.
