Our Winery


Located in Rueda, our winery was founded and began making wine in 1976, alongside the Appelation of Origin Rueda. And a clear commitment to the native Verdejo variety. The initial years were dedicated to consolidate the brand  Palacio de Bornos in the Castilla y Leon region, to later begin a rapid expansion both nationally and internationally. After more than forty years of solid work, successive business expansion and innovation continues. With a clear commitment to the vineyard, which reflects in our wines the quality that you can find in the brand Palace of Bornos, that has become one of the most recognized brands of the D.O. Rueda. and is present in the major markets worldwide.

We are the first winery to produce sparkling wine with single-varietal wine based Verdejo in Castile and Leon. A sparkling wine made following the traditional method that reflects the elegance and fineness of the native Verdejo variety.

Winemakig filosofy

The white wines of Rueda are wines made with aromatic grape varieties of great personality like Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc.

The main grape variety, the Verdejo, which is for me one of the best white grapes, is characterized by its aroma and flavour, with hints of dry scrubland herbs, fruity notes and an excellent acidity, acquired mainly on the stony soils where this variety is cultivated. The climate is also important, characterized by a high temperature variation between the day and the night, which is the secret for a good balance during the ripeness. Finally the good care of the winemaking will respect and accentuate the personality of the grape.

All this makes a wine with a great complexity of aromas, good volume on the palate and a touch of bitter on the final with a great fruity expression.

All those characteristics make this wine the perfect drink for unforgettable moments.
