|Bodega Palacio de Arganza
|The stone walls of this beautiful palace winery
guard the rich tradition of wine growing started by the gentlemen of Arganza, who
produced wines which carry great prestige among the nobility of the Royal Houses of
Galicia, Asturias and Leon. The cellar of Palacio de Arganza was established in 1805, it
has combined the best essence of the traditional wine growing, with the methods of
modern oenology to make wines of high quality. Inside the palace classical lines have
been chosen and can be clearly seen in the various rooms of the palace, both in
furniture and in the other elements which form part of he decoration. In the wine cellar
the red wines are submitted to a first maturing in large vats made of oak, afterwards
they are passed on to mature further in Bordeaux barrels and finally they are again put
into another large vat until the moment they are bottled. This is how the very balanced
presence of the wood is achieved in the red wines of Palacio de
Arganza. The red grape varieties are: Mencia, Garnacha, Tempranillo and Cabernet
Sauvignon. The white grape varieties are: Godello, Valenciana, Jerez and Riesling.

Mencia variety of grape, which feels velvety to the palate, are rich in potassium and
have a moderate pH. They are ideal for aging, conserved well up to ten or fifteen years.
