A timeless Rioja wine crafted by the vibrant and enterprising Vintae team, blending classic style with contemporary accessibility. The wines from Palacio del Camino de Real all share a common thread: sourced from superior grape-growing regions in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, situated in the heart of La Rioja Alta. This area stands as the cradle of Rioja’s winemaking tradition, hosting the finest old Tempranillo vineyards. It’s characterized by the unwavering dedication of their winemakers in tending to the vineyards and the heartfelt care infused into crafting each wine. Among our most prized and popular selections, this is a wine not to overlook.

An excellent Crianza style Rioja, a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, this wine has matured for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.

This is a crowd-pleasing Rioja Crianza with a bit of substance. Made from a blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano you get complex aromas of ripe dark fruits mix with coffee, vanilla, balsamic and woody notes. The palate is smooth and fruity, complemented by gentle tannins. Extremely enjoyable and easy to drink.

A fab food wine that will pair nicely with a roast lamb dinner or to be enjoyed on it’s own for a quiet night in!

Joe’s Judgements

Rioja wine is built upon the foundation of the Tempranillo grape, on its own producing wines with ripe, high levels of dusty tannins and structure, and lots of fruit. It’s not just one size fits all though, with a strict classification system based on the time that the wine has been matured in oak and in bottle. In the case of Rioja Crianza, it breaks down to at least 1 year in barrel (although often longer) and the rest in bottle for a total of 2 years. This wine spends longer than the minimum time in the barrel but still retains bright fruit which is great

Palacio del Camino Crianza one of our top-selling wines, for good reason as well! I often say that it has one foot in both camps of fruit and oak, meaning it’s a fantastic all-rounder. Upfront red and black fruit aromas such as cherry, strawberry, bramble fruits and plum and hints of vanilla, leather, chocolate and coffee. The oak isn’t too instrusive, with elegant tannins that still display some grip and structure. Balanced acidity and a spicy finish.

A great winter warmer, fantastic with hard cheeses, stews and lamb dished. Superb value.
