Named the 2015 "Man of the Year" by Decanter Magazine , Alvaro Palacios is one of the seminal figures in the Spanish wine. This prestigious title is awarded to people who have made an exceptional contribution to the universe of wine. Alvaro's work in Priorat helped establish the region as one of the best in all of Spain. 

While originally conceived of as a value wine, Les Terrasses has slowly evolved into Álvaro’s statement of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Terrasses is sourced from many of the region’s steepest and oldest vineyards—many of them north-facing to avoid the intense afternoon sun. Today, Les Terrasses is today perhaps the single finest introduction to Priorat in the marketplace.

'The final blend of the 2020 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes was 72% Garnacha and 28% Cariñena, with 14.5% alcohol. It is gentle, honest and with typicity representing the wines from yesteryear but clean and harmonious, with nice balance and no oxidation or volatility, so an updated version of the traditional wines.' - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 94 points
