Alvario Palacios Tasting - Woodman Wines & Spirits were kind enough to bring Alvaro Palacios (and his wines) to the Reserve to meet our members.
Alvaro studied enology in Bordeaux while working under Jean-Pierre Moueix at Chateau Petrus. He then returned to Spain where he helped revolutionize Spanish wine.
Wine Spectator called Alvaro “Spain’s Most Exciting Winemaker” & Wine & Spirits Magazine named him their “2003 Winemaker-of-the-Year”.
The cream of the crop of his portfolio (and very expensive at over $700/bottle) is the single vineyard wine L'Ermita.
Six of his wines were featured at our event.
Although short, this was one of my favorite tastings. Thanks to Russell and Jason at Woodman for thinking of us!
