Initially, the company's founder, Alvaro Palacios was selling barriques of French oak, but he always dreamed of himself to create great wines that reflect the character to maximize his native Spain. In the late 1980s he was able to realize his dream into reality and became abandoned vineyards near GALLARDO. This was the first step on the road to success. Later Alvaro together with his nephew Ricardo Pérez (oenologist by training) greatly expanded ownership by 100 small vineyards in the town of Bierzo. It is here that grow autochthonous grape variety Mencia, perfectly reflecting the characteristics of the terroir and gives the wine unique flavors and aromas. The first vintages created from Mensah showed that wine and Ricardo Alvarez expects starry future, as evidenced by today are high marks from respected wine critics such as Robert Parker and Stephen Tanzer.
All the wines of Desendientes H. de Palacios (which translates as "Heirs of Jose Palacios") are produced using biodynamic methods, aged in oak and are not filtered, so you can be assured of their highest quality and environmental friendliness.
