Alvaro Palacios is one of the notorious architects of the Spanish wine revolution of the 1980s.

A pioneer in the Priorat region where he created his own estate in 1989, he produces dark, powerful and concentrated wines with incredible minerality whose success was immediate. Active today in three distinct regions, Priorat, Bierzo and Rioja, Alvaro Palacios has greatly contributed to the development of Spanish wines, following the example of his father Remondo Palacios who made Rioja wines famous. Regularly awarded, like Finca Dofi 2017 (95 Parker), La Montesa 2018 (93+) and Placet Valtomelloso 2020 (94), the wines of Alvaro Palacios are available at and in the six De Coninck boutiques in Brussels and surroundings.
