The Bodega and vineyard
Right in the middle of the Rioja Alavesa, very close to Laguardia, sits a medieval walled village of great historical significance. In this village the Bodegas Palacio are located, surrounded by vineyards nestled in a privileged location for winemaking. Next door, we find the antique bodega, where more than 100 years ago, Don Cosme Palacio began crafting his wines. Today it has been converted into a small hotel in the pure French Chateaux style.
Bodegas Palacio houses one of the largest oaken barrel parks in la Rioja with more than 12,000 barrels, mostly of French oak. The barrels are continually renovated, insuring high quality wines with personality.
What sets the Bodegas Palacio apart in addition to our 170 hectares of vineyard under cultivation, are the long-term relationships we have fomented with other growers in the region. This gives us greater control of processes and grape selection, guaranteeing the same high quality year after year.
