Get to know Jean Leon's legacy through his wines.

Vinya Palau

First, an immigrant, then a taxi driver, successful restaurateur and trusted friend of some of the most iconic stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood, Jean Leon's story is a timeless tale of the American dream.

Always true to his origins, Vinya Palau is a tribute to his hometown of Santander, the starting point of a lifetime of success.

A wine that brings out the full expression of the Merlot grape variety. Fresh and elegant on the palate, with sweet tannins. It stands out for its long and intense finish.
