Trusted Shops Reviews

La Faraona is a red wine produced in the D.O. Bierzo by Descendientes de J. Palaces in the town of Villafranca del Bierzo, León. The winery was created by Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo in 1999, in love with the potential that the area had and the Mencía grape variety.

La Faraona
is a wine from a single vineyard, on the site known as El Ferrol, in the highest part of Corullón. It is located at an altitude of 975 meters and oriented southeast, so it only gets the sun in the morning, and stands on shallow slate soil.

La Faraona is prepared in a very traditional way, with a number of very light extractions performed by foot and respecting the grapes at all times, until the fermentation ends and it is deposited in barrels.

La Faraona is a single plot in El Bierzo, yielding an average of 1,000 bottles per year; a wine that represents the setting, the soil, the climate and the vineyard; converting the Mencía grape into something extraordinary and magical.

To talk of Descendientes de J. Palacios is to talk about Ricardo Perez and his uncle Álvaro Palacios, both passionate about simplifying the treatment of the vineyards and the wine production process, leading them to become pioneers of Biodynamic viticulture. The winery currently boasts 30 hectares of vineyards spread over 200 different plots, home to old vines and steep soils, which combines the organic with the immaterial in the constant search for the definition and purity of their wines.
Pictures and situation Descendientes de J. Palacios
Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
