Sold Out

Tucked away in the mountains of Spain's wild North West, hard up against the topmost corner of Portugal, Monterrei is one of Iberia's tiniest, and least known wine producing regions. Mencia is the grape native to that rugged part of the world, and, as far as we're aware, found nowhere else. The wine it produces is appropriately wild and brambly, dark and intense, but full of bright, fresh fruit that pulls it up just this side of brooding. A walk on the wild side with a spring in its step.


Adegas Pazo das Tapias was founded in 2006 when the Mendez family acquired the winery and the vineyard Las Tapias. Pazo das Tapias is located in the middle of its own vineyard, probably the best vineyards of the Monterrei D.O. in seniority and formation of the strain. The winery has a capacity of 500,000 litres and is equipped with all the technological advances in the production of white and young red wines. They produce wines with the grape varieties Godello white and Mencia red. Planted in the early 80s with innovative two different grape varieties and techniques.
