The wines of Palacios Remondo, Rioja, Spain
The family property of the famous Palacios clan

The Palacios family are making some of Spain's most exciting wines. We have Alvaro Palacios, who makes stunning wines in Priorat. Then there's the Bierzo project of Descendientes de J. Palacios in Corrullón, a partnership between Alvaro and nephew Ricardo Perez Palacios. Alvaro's brother, Rafael Palacios, makes excellent wines in Valdeorras. And finally, we have the family property of Palacios Remondo in Rioja.

This is based in the eastern part of the region, with a more Mediterranean climate. Garnacha does better here. These wines are really good, and are relatively affordable.
