ALVARO PALACIOS - RIOJA / PRIORAT / BIERZO

I love Alvaro’s unusual combination of impishness, innovation and determination to prioritise wine quality above all else. JANCIS ROBINSON

I have known Alvaro for many years; as a young man, he was a trainee with us in Pomerol. I was awestruck by his dynamism, and he has not changed. With his desire to improve the wines in his home country, and with an insatiable energy, he has embarked on many new projects. Spain is lucky to have him. CHRISTIAN MOUEIX, Winemaker at Chateau Petrus
