Understand the vineyards, innovate, above all, seek a wine that expresses the character of the Rioja Alavesa.
Bodegas Palacio launched its most iconic brand in 1899, bearing the name of the founder: Cosme Palacio y Hermanos. A wine characterised by the adoption of innovative methods that soon converted it in to an emblem and precursor of modern Rioja.
At the end of the 1980s, with the help of the prestigious international oenologist Michel Rolland, we reinterpreted the unique character of Cosme Palacio and defined what is considered to be the first modern Rioja wine. Our winemaker Roberto Rodríguez continues to push boundaries today. The selection of the Rioja Alavesa's best vines, work in the winery that seeks to maintain finesse and complexity, the desire to express aroma, flavour and character. All this means that Cosme Palacio is a family of pioneering wines that are full of balance, elegance and a sense of pleasure.
