Alvaro Palacios is one of the most important names in Spanish winemaking. Alvaro's family own the Palacios Remondo vineyard in Rioja, but after studying in Bordeaux and spending two years at Chateau Petrus, in 1990 Alvaro decided to found his own winery in Priorat rather than return to Rioja. There he purchased Finca Dofi, before adding the L'ermita vineyard in 1993. He has gone on to produce some of Spains finest wines since. Alvaro also makes wines in Bierzo with his nephew Ricardo Perez under the name Descendientes de J. Palacios, while his brother Rafael makes wines in Valdeorras
L'Ermita is the winery's flagship wine. Made from Garnacha and Samso, this is a full bodied and richly textured wine. Displaying a wonderfully aromatic nose there is an abundance of ripe fruit, licourice and espresso flavours and a charcoal minerality. It is remarkably well balanced, with great intensity and aging potential.
