Located in Rueda, Palacio de Bornos was founded in 1976, alongside the creation of the Rueda D.O. The initial years were dedicated to consolidating the brand in the Castilla y Leon region, to later begin a rapid expansion both nationally and internationally.
The character of the appellation is defined by three elements that result in high quality differentiated wines, with a strong personality.
- Grape Variety: Verdejo, indigenous to the area, resulting in crisp, pleasant and highly harmonious wines.
- Climate: continental with low rainfall, marked temperature contrasts between day and night and spring frosts, providing low yields and high quality.
- Soils: gravelly, permitting great drainage.
Palacio de Bornos was the first winery in Spain´s Castilla y León region to produce a sparkling wine, in 1978. Since those early days, the winery has sought to exploit the great potential of the Verdejo grape in a single variety wine, with its unique individual character, to produce a very high quality traditional-method sparkling wine.
Palacio de Bornos has 308 hectares of vineyards, in the towns of Rueda, Pollos and La Seca.
