Placet Rioja Blanco, Palacios Remondo
Palacios Remondo is a family-owned winery based in Alfaro, in Rioja Oriental, the warmest and most easterly part of the Rioja appellation. The soils here are silty and alluvial and the semi-arid Mediterranean climate is well-suited to growing Garnacha, a variety that is finally coming back into the foreground in this region, after decades of being supplanted by the more popular Tempranillo.
After making his name in Priorat and Bierzo, Álvaro Palacios returned to his ancestral home in Rioja and took over the winemaking reigns at Palacios Remondo.
Palacios Remondo produces the only white wine of the three properties, Plácet de Valtomelloso, which is an elegant and lightly oaked Viura, fermented and aged in large old foudres. One of the best whites in Spain!
Great with grilled fish, roast pork or chicken. Delicious.
