Special Guest Francisco w/Glorioso & Filus Wines
Filus Wines reflects the passion, care and search of excellence by its founders, Family Capone and Family Di Leo.
They come from families related to the wine industry in Mendoza and achieve to make excellent quality wines in their own winery, which was founded in 1997. We have six estates in different regions of Mendoza, amounting to 150 ha (370 ac). For Filus wines grapes come from vineyards located in the Uco Valley in the case of red wines and from Salta in the case of Torrontes.
In the last 20 years, the Uco Valley has become the most developed region for high-end wines. These wines are made with the best grape selection coming from their own vineyards, located at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The careful winemaking process uses state-of-the-art technology as well as French oak barrels coming from the best barrel-makers.
GLORIOSO : is the sum result of the great virtues of its origin: tradition, prestige and balance
One of the greatest landmarks in the history of Bodegas Palacio was the launch of Glorioso in 1917. Throughout its ten decades of history, the brand has grown greatly in prestige due to its capacity to interpret the personality of the Rioja Alavesa: the unique sum of a deep winemaking tradition and a genuinely vibrant and fresh style.
Elegant, smooth, expressive and rich in flavour, Glorioso is the faithful reflection of its prestigious origin and of more than a century of know-how. The result is a range of wines that offer the purest balance between fruit and oak, and that meet the highest expectations in terms of gastronomic pleasure.
