The Galician winery Rafael Palacios bears the name of its owner that is none other than the son of Dn. José Palacios Remondo, founder of the homonymous winery and passionate white wine producer. After creating his first wine in the family winery, Rafael Palacios decided to embark on his own soil and chose the Bibei Valley to start his own company. That is where the godello grape vineyards are found, excellent for the production of fine white wines, cultivated in a traditional and respectful manner avoiding all use of synthetic treatments and pesticides.

From the hand of the winery of Rafael Palacios we invite you to discover this Louro 2018, a delicious white wine with DO Valdeorras produced from a perfect selection of the best godello and treixadura grapes. The harvest of the grapes was carried out selectively taking into account the cultivation plot and its orientation. The Louro 2018 has a four-month aging on its own fine lees in French oak vats from the Norman forests.

This exquisite wine of straw yellow color and golden and greenish reflections delights us with its fresh, intense and balanced aromas of white fruit, flowers, citrus, and citric notes. After enjoying its perfume there is nothing left but to have the pleasure of tasting this unctuous white with an excellent level of acidity, very good structure, and prolonged finish.
