The winery Bodegas Álvaro Palacios is located in the municipality of Gratallops in the Spanish DOCa area Priorato (Catalonia). It was founded in 1989 by Álvaro Palacios, who descends from a long-established Rioja family who had been wine-growing here since the mid-19th century. After studying oenology in Bordeaux, he worked at the wineries Château Petrus in Bordeaux and Stag's Leap Wine Cellars worked in the Napa Valley and then traded in barrels. Then he decided to produce a world-class wine. As a "young, wild winemaker", Palacios, together with René Barbier from the Clos Mogador winery, shaped the success of the new area from the beginning of the 1990s under the guidance of the doctoral biologist Professor José Luis Pérez. The own vineyards cover 35 hectares of vineyards, the after and biodynamic Aspects are managed.

Álvaro Palacios became famous with his wine "L'Ermita", which is named after a five hectare single layer, which comes from an average of 90-year-old vines with a yield of a maximum of ten hectoliters per hectare. It is blended from Garnatxa = Garnacha Tinta (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Carineña (5%) and matures for 20 months in new French 500-liter oak barrels. It also comes in large format bottles such as Magnum (1.5 liters), but also Jeroboam (4.5 liters = 6 x 0.75 l) filled. The wine counts with that Dominio de Pingus among the most expensive red wines in Spain. Outstanding vintages are 1990, 1991, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997. The second wine is also called "Finca Dofí" after a single layer. It is blended from Garnatxa and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as some Carineña, Merlot and Syrah. A third wine made from purchased Garnatxa, Carineña and Cabernet Sauvignon is called "Les Terrasses".

After the father's death in 2000, Álvaro Palacios took over the family winery Palacios Remondo in Alfaro in Rioja area, Already two years earlier, together with Ricardo Perez, he had the Descendientes de José Palacios winery in the area Bierzo founded in the Castile-Leon region. In 2015 he received from Decanter Magazine the title "Man of the Year". His brother Rafael Palacios operates the winery of the same name in the area valdeorras in Galicia.
