The Palacios family founded Bodegas Proelio in 2012 in the 30 hectare-estate that had been in the family since the early eighties. This project was started based on three key elements: indigenous varietals, high elevation and vineyards North oriented.
Proelio is a commitment to preserving the old, high-altitude vineyards of different areas of Rioja. The plots that make up the soul of Proelio, "battle" in Latin, are small pieces of land that remain standing in their fight against extinction: garnachas, tempranillos or gracianos from old and wise vines, which produce fruit capable of building living, expressive and long-lasting wines.
At Proelio, they seek to produce wines with typical characteristics, from privileged territories that have been little explored. After a detailed study, they adapt each agricultural task to the requirements of each plot. Theyhave own top-of-the-range vineyards located at high altitudes, fresh sites of old vines that are worked with care to achieve wines that are inimitable, but at the same time, that speak of this Rioja. A raw material that is a real treasure, and as such is treated in the winery to make the wines. Rioja is charged with a typicality that marks Nature and man interprets it.
