Great tour, friendly & educational
Nov. 2018 • Couples
A very warm and friendly tour, despite a little bit of communication difficulty on occasion (we are English speakers). But still, more than enough to understand the gist of it. Very educational and their wines are very high quality. Great fino! Excellent restaurant recommendation for lunch at Le Cepa (it was quite busy during lunch and we were the only non Spanish people there, so not touristy at all). Many thanks!

Wonderful bodega visit
Sep. 2018 • Friends
We were 12 to visit this bodega and had an extensive tour of all the different areas. Once through the gates, this is a massive production hidden behind the white walls in Montilla. From the fresh new wines to the dark rich sherries to balsamic vinegar, you get the full explanation of how everything is stored/pressed/aged with a lovely tasting at he end. As it was my birthday, they threw in a bottle of my choice to take home, a lovely touch. If you are hand luggage only, they do miniature bottles too.

My wife and I visited the Perez Barquero bodega very recently. It was a hideous day and the rain was torrential so we made a spur of the moment decision to visit one of the big Montilla bodegas. We decided Perez Barquero instead of Bodegas Alvear because they were more flexible about the start time of the tour. The bodega is located at the entry of Montilla if approaching from the south and it's easy to find with ample parking space.

We were met by a charming man, armed with an umbrella, who did a sterling job considering the weather conditions. I was impressed with the company because we were the only people on this tour and we received exceptional personal attention. I have been on tours in Jerez which were very much run by the script and clock but that was not the case here. Anyone that has visited a sherry bodega will know what to expect but there are some differences. The production of Montilla wine relies exclusively on the Pedro Ximenez grape for all its varieties from fino through to the sweet stuff. You will also see the rows of tinajas, the large, half buried, cement (apparently) vats containing the young juice. The rest of the production process is modern with the exception of their ancient and precious barrels.

The tour ends, appropriately, with an educational tasting of several varieties. I have to admit to being quite partial to Montilla wines and Perez Barquero does have a unique bodega character. The excellent Pedro Ximenez Fino is quite different from its counterparts in Cadiz. The outstandingly good value Amontillado is aged for twenty years. We bought some as well as the youthful sweet PX. Like most bodegas they also produce an excellent brandy (Monte Cristo) which displays the unique bodega character.

Despite a modern resurgence of interest in sherry (Montilla in this case) the facts reveal an alarming decline in its consumption, particularly amontillado and oloroso. Anyone remotely interested should try to visit and support these bodegas. It's well worth a trip, especially as you can buy at source expressions that are generally hard to find outside of the neighbourhood.

The most welcoming staff, ever!
Feb. 2016 • Couples
My wife and I made an unplanned detour on our return drive from Sevilla to Malaga in order to visit Montilla-Morilles wineries. As a result, we showed up unannounced after the scheduled tour hours.

Yet, unlike their competitors in town, the winery personnel were most understanding and generous. I especially, must salute Señora Adela Córdoba Ruz for her kindest nature and for accommodating us to do a short visit and tasting.

The Perez Barquero facilities are absolutely beautiful and impeccably maintained. The cellars exuded the musty, sugary, spiced aroma of aging oxidized wine. And, you were greeted with the zingy smell of ripe lemons as we walked through the winery's inside courtyard, which is laced with mature lemon and orange trees. Lovely!

We were offered a line up of five sherries ranging from light and dry Fino to a sumptuous and sweet Pedro Ximenez, but it is their nutty, off-dry Amontillado which was worth the drive!

Myth dispelling tour
Mar. 2015 • Couples
When you visit the Perez Barquero bodega in Montilla (Cordoba) be prepared to have some of the myths regarding Sherry dispelled for instance they produce (amongst others) Fino, Amontillado and Oloroso wine so if you thought these were Sherries, they're not, that is unless they are made in Jerez.this bodega uses exclusively Pedro Ximenez grapes with the DOM, Montilla Moriles, the visit to the bodega lasts about 1 1/2 hours and the tasting is of 5 wines, they also produce vinegar again from Pedro Ximenez Grape. Although this bodega is in the town itself you can park inside it in their patio area.
