Paco & Lola - Rias Baixas

Paco & Lola comes from 500 sun-kissed acres of vineyards in Meano (Pontevedra) where the Rosalia de Castro Winery is situated in an area considered to be the cradle of Albarino wine.

This valley, inhabited for thousands of years by the Celts, Phoenicians and Romans, naturally favors wine growing. The star variety of the valley is Albarino, which according to legend was introduced in the 12th century by Benedictine monks from central Europe. Today the Salnes Valley forms part of the famous Rias Baixas

    Very nice, simple white. Very similar in taste to a California Sauvignon Blanc. Refreshingly crisp with hints of melon and citrus. Nice balance of acidity. Wonderfully paired with seafood, especially scallops. Read More

  • Paco & Lola Albarino 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This smells quite ripe with a fairly neutral sweet nutmeat tone and candied pineapple fruit. A touch of trapped CO2 livens the palate, but this is rather flat and weighty with interesting if simple flavors that recall the candied tropical notes of the nose. The finish is short with a hint of mineral and a touch of heat. 83pts Read More
