If anyone embodies the promise and spirit of "The New Spain", it is Alvaro Palacios. Decanter's man of the year 2015, has now just won the 2016 Winemakers Award by the Institute of Masters of Wine. Alvaro has already been recognised for the last decade as possibly the greatest winemaker ever from Spain.

After studying while working at Chateau Petrus in Bordeaux, he returned to Spain in the early 1990s and gained his fame reviving the ancient vineyards of Priorat, including the legendary L'Ermita. He then turned his focus to another forgotten and special region Bierzo, and is easily the finest producer there. After the death of his father in 2000 he also assumed responsibilty for the family winery in Rioja. Tonight we will be looking at all of these three areas, and some of the top wines of Spain including the $1000 per bottle L'Ermita.

- Palacios Remondo La Montesa Rioja 2011
- La Montesa Rioja Riserva Especial 2010
