How to serve
Ricardo Perez Palacios is one of the great architects of a quiet revolution is taking place in the, so far, Bierzo region quite stagnant. Chelo is the son of Palacios, of the dynasty known Palacios (Remondo) of the Rioja, and this adventure has helped his famous uncle, Alvaro Palacios, well known for its wines of Priorat. Ricardo, 25, whom everyone knows by 'titin', has a long experience in France, Chile and the United States, and the wine have lived since birth, and having visited a lot of great producers of France along with Alvaro. Passionate dedication to the two sides Palacios Bierzo are born, not good Mencia grape wines, but the first great wines of great area, perhaps one day the Priorat northwest.More about the Winery
