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.
While originally conceived of as a value wine, Les Terrasses has slowly evolved into Álvaro’s statement of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Terrasses is sourced from many of the region’s steepest and oldest vineyards—many of them north-facing to avoid the intense afternoon sun.
