Alvaro Palacios, Man of the Year

Spanish winemaker Alvaro Palacios was named ‘Man of the Year’ by UK’s Decanter magazine last year.

Great Domaines are now the exclusive importer of the wines of Alvaro Palacios in South Africa and very excited to have his wines make up part of our existing Spanish wine portfolio.

“He has been credited with putting Spain on the fine wine map, transforming the fortunes of Priorat and Bierzo, and is now directing his focus on Rioja Baja, which is why Decanter has awarded Alvaro Palacios the Man of the Year title for 2015.” reads the article on We did a tasting of the wines earlier in the year, receiving a resoundingly positive reception to them from those in attendance.

The current range of 6 wines imported by Great Domaines consists of: La Vendimia and Propiedad (Rioja); Villa de Corullon and Moncerbal (Bierzo); Camins del Priorat and Finca Dofi (Priorat). The Moncerbal received an incredible 94/100 points from Josh Reynolds, who writes for Vinous Media.
