I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

History provided by the bodega:
Seven years before the Rueda region was granted D.O.status, Antonio Sanz decided to open his own winery there. He is the owner and winemaker at Bodegas Palacio de Bornos and is a man with great passion and foresight. He realized the potential of the area’s soil and climate and how perfect they were for the unique characteristics of the Verdejo grape.The Sanz’s family has been making wine in the Rueda Area for five generations dating back to 1870 in the nearby town of La Seca. Antonio was a pioneer in the Rueda region for being the first to make fresh modern-style white wines from the area. At Palacio de Bornos, all the Verdejo grapes are harvested at night, and from the arrival at the winery until bottling they are handled with care in protective environments.Verdejo is the “queen of grapes” and it is their mission to showcase the refinement and elegance that this grape has to offer. “Our aim is to grow the best grape quality in order to produce the best wines.” says Antonio.
