The estate is located in the municipality of A Rúa (Ourense) in the DO area valdeorras in Galicia, It was founded in 2004 by Rafael Palacios. His older brother Álvaro Palacios is the legendary winemaker from the Priorato area in Catalonia. The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vines, on sometimes tiny, terraced 35 plots or layers (Galician "Sortes") on sand, schiefer and granitaltigen soils at over 700 meters above sea level in the Sil (tributary of the Miño) traversed Valle del Bibei are distributed. These include, 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 wine varieties and gained experience in Australia before going after Rioja returned. At the family winery Palacios Remondo he created the white wine "Placet". At his winery he relies mainly on the local Godello with up to 100-year-old vines. The natural management is partly according to biodynamic Regulate. The temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in wooden barrels of various sizes, sometimes in oak barrels. Premium wines are the 100% Godello pressed "As Sortes" (from prime locations) and "O Soro", both of which mature in barrique for 12 months. Every year around 150,000 bottles of wine are produced.
