Review

La Montesa is a well-defined, refined wine, signed by the Palacios family, wine artisans wherever they make it, in the Priorat, Bierzo or La Rioja.

In the words of Luis Gutiérrez, "it does feel like a more expensive wine".

Bodegas Palacios Remondo

Bodegas Palacios Remondo

The Palacios family boasts an impressive vinicultural tradition that goes back over the last four generations. However, it was José Palacios Remondo who was really responsible for making the winery what it is today, by planting the best possible selection of La Rioja’s traditional grape varieties, and treating viticulture as his true vocation. Showing great vision for the future, he sent his children (now in charge of the company) to be trained at the best French schools of...
