Alvaro Palacios was born in the winery Palacios Remondo in Alfaro, it is in his blood. Having conquered (or invented, whichever way you see it) Priorat and Bierzo he returned to Rioja to free the family winery from as he calls it; fictitious wine (bought in and/or irrigated fruit or unsuitable vines planted for high yield purposes).
After re-grafting old Garnacha vines and ripping up fictitious vines, Alvaro spearheaded the campaign to re-name Rioja Baja (lower) to Rioja Oriental. Palacios Remondo La Vendimia is one of the best value Rioja on the planet, joven style with 50/50 Tempranillo/Garnacha. La Montesa is the fruit of his re-planting project, it is for the first time 100% Alfaro Garnacha, this is a stellar wine that has received huge plaudits. La Propiedad is similar but moves up a gear in intensity, depth and freshness, a stellar and highly pointed wine. STSWine
