Álvaro Palacios


Álvaro Palacios came to the Priorat, to the town of Gratallops to be precise, following the lead of a group of local producers fully intending to pass on through their wines all the character of this land, full of its own brightness, with the shining Mediterranean sun, the gleaming slate in rocky crags, and brightly-coloured fennel in the olive groves. This is mystic, spiritual country tracing back its past to the Carthusian monks, who worked at cultivating vines for more than six centuries.

Growing in open-sited, alkaline soils, the old Garnacha vines enjoy a Mediterranean climate with more than 3,000 hours of sun per annum, an average yearly rainfall of less than 380mm, and close proximity to the sea, which provides freshness from the sea breeze (known locally as the “garbinada”) in summer.

Spirit, patience, passion, light and rigour have all played their part in creating fresh and mineral, well-rounded wines, which have revolutionized the Spanish wine-making scene and reached the greatest heights of prestige and recognition on the worldwide stage.
