With five generations of experience, Palacios Remondo knows how to make wine. Winemaker Alvaro Palacio studied in Bordeaux, while working under Jean-Pierre Mouiex at Chateau Petrus. Considered the "promise and spirit of New Spain", Palacio makes delicious wines that are expressive and authentic to Rioja.

The estate is situated on some of the highest elevations in Rioja. Palacios is committed to organic viticulture and natural winemaking practices to create the best wines that they can. 

"The 2017 La Montesa is mostly Garnacha with some 8% other red varieties and comes from a warm and dry year that saw a very early harvest, up to 20 days earlier than usual. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrique for 12 months. It feels very Mediterranean, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and ripe berries. It's juicy and lush, round and very pleasant, easy to drink. 670,000 bottles produced and will be labeled organic, very remarkable for such volume." - 92 Points, Robert Parker

“Lots of cherry and raspberry aromas with floral undertones here. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins, and a fresh finish. Fruity finish.” - 92 points James Suckling

"This Garnacha’s red fruit feels infused with energy, its gentle grape-skin tannins keeping it light and open. It grows at an elevation of 1,800 feet, the fruit of 32-year-old Garnacha vines spontaneously fermented in stainless steel vats and aged one year in barrels." - 91 Points Wine and Spirits
