Palmazes and their Napa valley winery adventures


Not many wineries have a story as interesting to quote as Dr. Julio and Amalia Palmaze, who now own a 100,000 square foot underground complex worth $20 million. The 55 feet high and 75 feet wide domed room has two elevators that shuttle wine barrels, workers, and visitors some 15 stories below. A large window separates dr—Palamaze’s subterranean office from an 8,000 square foot display of Porsche race cars’ collection. After taking a thorough glance at all the swag the high-tech workstation has to offer, a visitor rightly remarked, “It looks like NASA” But the splendor of the winery was established after resisting a series of overwhelming circumstances like unhappy neighbors, lawsuit filed by county officials and disapproval by state.

The Palamaze vineyards roughly produces 6000 cases of Cabernets and 1,000 cases of White wine every year, which sell from $32- $150 in restaurants, stores and by mail order. The Wine spectator marked their 2002 Cab as a ‘solid effort’ and their 2004 vintage as “trim and refined”, giving both an approving score of 89.
