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. With a little more Grenache added to each vintage, it is a flavoursome and refreshing wine, raised on the radiant slopes of Mount Yerga, in the highest part of the Alfaro municipality, in 'La Rioja Oriental'. In the words of Luis Gutiérrez, "it does feel like a more expensive wine".

La Montessa - great value

One of the best value wines I buy from Vinissimus, a glassful of smooth loveliness and a bottle of it under a tenner!

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...
