The estate is located in the municipality of A Rúa (Ourense province) in the DO area valdeorras in Galicia, It was founded in 2004 by Rafael Palacios. His older brother Alvaro Palacios is the legendary winemaker from the Priorato area in Catalonia. The vineyards encompass 20 hectares of vineyards, some of them on tiny, terraced 35 plots or layers (Galician "Sortes") on sand, slate and granite soils at over 700 meters above sea level in the Valle del crossed by the Sil (tributary of the Miño) Bibei are distributed. These are, for example, 1920, Caneiros, Castineiro, Chao do Couso, Coalleira, Encarnacion, Falcoeira, Olivar, O Serro, O Soro, dos Santos, Valdanta, Valdauga, Valverde and Venta.

Rafael Palacios has always had a penchant for white wines and gained experience in Australia before going after Rioja returned. At the family winery Palacios Remondo there he created the white wine "Placet". At his winery, he mainly relies on the local Godello with vines up to 100 years old. Management close to nature is carried out in part biodynamic Regulate. The temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in wooden barrels of various sizes, sometimes also in barriques. Premium wines are the "As Sortes" (from top locations) and "O Soro" made from 100% Godello, both of which are aged in barrels for 12 months. Around 150,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
