Alvaro Palacios is a wine producer most famous for its Garnacha-based wines from Priorat. Established in 1990 by Alvaro Palacios himself, the winery has been forefront of Priorat's rise to fame as one of Spain's most prestigious wine regions.

After spending time working at Petrus in Pomerol, he bought his own vineyard in the then obscure region of Priorat, where the steep, slate-based hillsides covered in gnarled bush vines had been forgotten about in the second half of the 20th Century. Palacios soon grew his estate and now owns several vineyards in the area, often considered in the same league as Dominio de Pingus or Vega Sicilia.

Quiñón de Valmira is a pleasant surprise from La Rioja where the Garnacha is more elegant and distinct than the popular Tempranillo variety. A Rioja red that reminds us how talented renowned winemaker Álvaro Palacios is, with his ability to identify places and varieties that make up exquisite and surprising blends, a gift that has seen him become one of the world’s great winemakers.

Tasting Notes

On the nose it is seductive and subtle with notes of white pepper, sweet spices, cream and a slight hint of incense. Fruit aromas fill everything with sour cherries, raspberries, nectarines and citrus fruits such as orange and grapefruit accompanied by a refreshing memory of herbs. On the palate it continues with the fragrance, and a light and seductive texture. Soft, delicate and very long.

Poultry or pork, salmon, trout or barbecue.
