Quiñón de Valmira is a Garnacha red wine made with a minimal amount of other local red varieties. It is made by the Palacios Remondo winery in the D.O C. Rioja in Alfaro, La Rioja.

The grapes used to make the Quiñón de Valmira wine come from a single vineyard, a limestone podium over the Ebro Valley with cold soils that produce an open and expressive wine. This plot has 20 cm thick surface material with predominantly carbonated and clay-ferrous sediments. The subsoil has a deep calcium layer.

The vineyard lies on a gently sloping hillside with vines aged around 30 years old. They are cultivated according to the principles of organic agriculture. When the grapes reach the winery, they are gently destemmed and squeezed and begin alcoholic fermentation in wooden vats with their native yeasts. The resulting wine undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrels and aging in foudres and bocois for around 18 months, depending on the vintage.

Quiñón de Valmira is a pleasant surprise from La Rioja where the Garnacha is more elegant and distinct than the popular Tempranillo variety. A Rioja red that reminds us how talented renowned winemaker Álvaro Palacios is, with his ability to identify places and varieties that make up exquisite and surprising blends, a gift that has seen him become one of the world’s great winemakers.

The new and latest stage of Álvaro Palacios as the lead of the family-run winery. As an outspoken advocate of the concept of cru wines, he has turned the land and the vineyard into the identity mark of the wines of Palacios Remondo and into the business success of the winery. Since he joined the family winery in 2000 along with his sister Chelo, and with a renewed significance of the current vineyard they own, the style of the wines of Palacios Remondo has been noticeably transformed in a few years. Mainly with the objective of giving greater importance to the local variety, the Red Grenache.
Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
