Bodegas Palacio was founded in Laguardia, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, in 1894 by Don Cosme Palacio. It forms part of the Grupo Bodegas Palacio 1894, which is one of Spain’s most successful premium wine groups, with estates in D.O.Ca. Rioja, D.O. Ribera del Duero, D.O. Toro, Valladolid and D.O. Rueda.
Rioja Alavesa sits between the Cantabrian Mountains to the north and River Ebro to the south. The combination of a relatively high annual rainfall and cool Atlantic winds lends the wines their trademark freshness and elegance. Bodegas Palacio is one of the most dynamic producers in the region and the winery controls 200 hectares of vineyards. There is a focus on classic Rioja styles which are 100% Tempranillo, as well as traditional whites from predominantly Viura. Experienced winemaker Roberto Rodríguez ensures that careful grape selection, single vineyard vinification and ageing in the finest new French oak barrels results in unique award-winning wines.
The Glorioso brand was introduced in 1917 and faithfully reflects the personality of Rioja Alavesa. Elegant, smooth, expressive and rich in flavour - Glorioso wines are aged in French oak barrels for a unique fresh and vibrant style.
Cosme Palacio honours the innovative spirit of Don Cosme Palacio, who played a leading role in the development of Rioja. The best grapes are selected and aged in new French oak barrels, which are replaced each vintage, leading to wines of great structure and finesse.
