Alvaro Palacios Camis del Priorat


Alvaro Palacios is one of nine children born into a respected Rioja wine producer Palacios Remondo. He decided to study enology in Bordeaux and after graduation worked at Petrus. He eventually returned to Spain where he worked for a period as a barrel salesman getting the opportunity to travel throughout Spain’s wine regions.

In 1989, Alvaro as a member of the “Gang of Five” made his first wine and that group of 5 producers put the Priorat on the international wine world map. Alvaro acquired his first vineyard in 1990 and named it Finca Dofi. Camins del Priorat is a red blend of Garnacha, Samso (known as Carignan in France), Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. This wine is for fans of big bold reds and red blends.
