About Álvaro Palacios
Álvaro Palacios is one of the giants of Spanish winemaking, having been named Decanter “Man of the Year” in 2015 – in esteemed company with the likes of the late, great Steven Spurrier and Serge Hochar of Château Musar.
Palacios is something of an all-rounder on the Spanish fine wine scene, crafting exceptional cuvées from Bierzo and Rioja alongside Priorat. It is his endeavours in the latter, however, which have seen the vigneron ascend to the upper echelons of vinous masters. On a very sharp curve of increasing demand from global collectors, the prestige cuvées from Palacios such as “l’Ermita Priorat” are consistently commanding prices of £2,000 per case with ease.
