This is one of the most historic wineries in Rueda, with a wine production dating back to 1870. Palacio de Bornos is a varietal Verdejo, the most notorious variety in Rueda. Regarding the development of Palacio de Bornos Verdejo, the grapes undergo a manual selection. Subsequently a temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel barrels.

This is a 100% Verdejo that, usually, never disappoints and sold at a very attractive price. I used to buy this wine when, at times, I passed by the km. 170.6 of La Coruña highway.

  1. I’ve tasted this wine before but not for a while – your post reminds me that I should try it again. I agree, it’s good for the price. A refreshing white for the summer.

    1. If you ask for my favourite Rueda wines (100% Verdejo) I’ll suggest Marqués de Riscal Rueda Verdejo 2014 (below €7) and my favourite Finca Montico 2014 (below €13). More affordable Blanco Nieva Verdej0 (below €6) Basa (below €7) and have good memory of Verdejo Martinvilli at around € 6.

      1. Thanks, Jose. Funnily enough, the Marqués de Riscal Rueda is another favourite! Haven’t come across the Finca Montico, but I’ll be trying a Finca Lallana Verdejo next month. Hoping for good things.
