This producer stood out at Fenavin 2023 for us, against a myraid of Rioja producers. Marqués de Tomares is a family winery, whose beginnings date back to 1910 when Don Roman Montana began to dedicate himself to the production and aging of wines. Foundations were laid with focus on high quality blending, and slow maturation in barrel and bottle; an approach which his great grandchildren continue to pursue. Marqués de Tomares wines are the perfect expressions of traditional Rioja, fresh, fruit forward and beautifully balanced. Despite being a small producer, you can also find their wines stocked at world-famous Harrod’s of London against the worlds finest.
