Producer: Paco & Lola
Founded in 2005, Paco & Lola is the fruit of a business initiative of a group of independent winegrowers from O Salnés who wanted to take their production to the highest professional level. These growers formed a cooperative called “Sociedad Cooperativa Vitivinícola Arousana,” which has over 400 members, making it the largest cooperative in DO Rías Baixas. Paco & Lola has almost 500 acres of vineyards situated over more than 1900 plots of land, typical of Galician small holdings.
A distinctive product identity, a desire to think outside of the box and a quest for global brand recognition are the three pillars of Paco & Lola’s business philosophy. This drives absolutely everything the winery accomplishes, from winemaking to packaging and bottle design – emboldened with Paco & Lola’s signature crisp, bold polka dots. By being true to their philosophy Paco & Lola has become one of the most recognized wineries in DO Rías Baixas. Ultimately the foundation on which these pillars stand is to make exceptional wines for exceptional people.
Matured for six months on the lees, this wines presents a textured mouth as well as a crisp acidity around flavors of citrus and green apple. This Galician wine is worth a try, especially before dinner, to awaken your taste buds.
Food Suggestion: Excellently paired with seafood, shellfish, poultry and mild cheese.
