Discover the secrets of the wine making process at one of the most promising wine regions in Europe: "Bierzo". Its primary grape, Mencia, is found nowhere else in the world.
Two of the best Spanish Winemakers,Alvaro Palacios and Raúl Pérez, started producing their signature wines here and now some of them are awarded with 100 points by Robert Parker' Wine Advocate list, the maximum score possible for a wine.
Rural and remote, lushly beautiful but little known, Bierzo is the kind of region wine lovers dream of discovering. It is an important stop along Spain’s legendary pilgrim’s route, the Camino de Santiago so you will find here delicious wines, mouthwatering food and an impressive cultural heritage. Romans started to make wine in this region more than 2000 years ago while they lived here attracted by the rich gold mines in the region. Wine production have always been a tradition transmitted from generation to generation since then and recently many family-run properties starting to produce wines from very old vines more than 100 years old and planting new ones to increase the production of this up-and-coming red wine. "Mencía" is the grape's name predominant in the area.
Palacio de Canedo is the most important wine estate in Bierzo, where you can enjoy a spectacular palace made of wood & stone, beautifully restored and turned into a rustic-chich luxury hotel surrounded by vineyards.
A stroll through the vineyards and a wine tasting of their famous wines paired with delicious local food while you contemplate a spectacular sunset will be the cherry on the cake to a visit to this magical region.
