Alvaro Palacios is Spain's most celebrated wine maker. Born in the family winery in Rioja, he spread his wings as a wine maker at Petrus & Stag's Leap before coming back and establishing, not just his own label, but entire regions in Priorat and Bierzo in the 1990's. (Before this time these regions were but a footnote in wine encyclopedias).

Vi de Vila Gratallops 
was the first wine named after its Village location, Alvaro lobbied the consejo regulador and it has initiated great change in Priorat as they move towards a village classification system. A kind of a baby Finca Dofi, it is quintessentially Priorat. Garnacha and Carinena, like the Dofi the wine is brimming with character imparted from Priorat's unique licorella soil (which recalls the scent you get from truffle), and like the Dofi it actually borrows fruit from Spain's most expensive vineyard; l'Ermita. Drink or cellar. STSWine
