Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow color with green tinged glints. Intense floral aroma. Crisp acidity with fruity notes on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 89
Wine Enthusiast
Nettle, jalapeño, lettuce leaf and citrus aromas feed into a juicy palate with plenty of acidic cut. Arugula, bell pepper and lime flavors finish crisp, fresh and clean but with little to no evolution off the palate. Best Buy.

Palacio de Bornos, Rueda, Spain
Image of winery
Located in Rueda, Palacio de Bornos winery was founded and began making wine in 1976, alongside the Appelation of Origin Rueda. The initial years were dedicated to consolidate the brand in the Castilla y Leon region, to later begin a rapid expansion both nationally and internationally.

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 thye have sought to exploit the great potential of the Verdejo grape in a single variety wine, with is individual, unique character, to produce a very high quality traditional-method sparkling wine.

Rueda is located along the banks of the Duero River in Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive north of Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back to the 12th century, it was in the 1980s that the region was granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 70 wineries call Rueda home. This national favorite is the top-selling white wine in Spain.

Notable facts Rueda’s main grape variety, Verdejo, gets it distinct complexity from stressful growing conditions and mineral-rich soil. Think of Verdejo as a fuller-bodied and more aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. A lush and smooth character with perfectly balanced acidity means Rueda wines pair well with seafood, fresh salads and spicy food, but are also great on their own.

Light-bodied but captivating with flavors of citrus blossom, melon, white peach and fennel, Verdejo is native to Rueda, Spain, and is growing in popularity. If you’re used to drinking Sauvignon blanc or Pinot grigio, this is the wine for you! Contrary to what some may think, it is actually not related to the Portugese variety with a very similar name, Verdelho. In fact, DNA profiling suggests it is most likely a sibling of Godello, a variety native to northwest Spain. Enjoy this little charmer with a variety of dishes like fish tacos, Thai food, papaya salad or even lemon-spritzed asparagus and steamed artichokes.
