The small town of Corullón is set in a landscape of hills, amidst ancient slate-covered slopes, in a land of monks and pilgrimages (Compostela is not far away) and amongst Mencía grapes - an exceptional setting which Ricardo Pérez Palacios and Álvaro Palacios (Álvaro Palacios, Priorat) discovered in 1999.
A new winery to join the Palacios dynasty (Palacios Remondo, in La Rioja), it extends to a total of 27 ha of vineyards scattered over nearly 200 parcels and planted with very old, high-quality vines on extremely steep terrain. Ricardo and Álvaro cultivate them using biodynamic methods, a system of principles which, to quote the winery, “combines the organic and the abstract in the continual quest for definition and purity; a process of unification, uniting soil and plant, human toil and animal exertion”. This enables them to obtain wines that are fresh, fragrant, juicy and full of vitality, truly reflecting the vine-growing personality that imbues the hills of Bierzo.
Thanks to biodimanic agriculture, which allows to respect the perfect balance between soil, plant and work of man and animals, Ricardo P. Palacios together with his uncle Álvaro, obtains fresh, fragrant, juicy and full of life wines. Wines with great purity and precision, able to convey all the personality of the hills of the Bierzo.
