Paco & Lola

Winery history 

Paco & Lola is a modern, young and sustainable winery, which offers mindful respect for past traditions while promoting equally fresh curiosity for the contemporary. 

The project was born in 2005, when a group of independent winegrowers from O Salñes, in the Rías Baixas came together to form a quality-focused co-operative winery. The winery is state-of-the-art and the winemaking impeccable, while the grapes come from a series of superb small sites, all located in the Val do Salnés.  

Sustainable wines 

Sustainable production is part of Paco & Lola best practices, through their integrated management of winegrape growing that ensures the maximum respect for the environment. This innovative project is committed to minimizing the use of chemical products on their wines and consequently, it has gained the respect of customers throughout the world. They are one of three members of Life + Atlantic Vineyards. 

Viticulture/Winemaking Style 

Cultivating Albariño grapes in the Rías Baixas is an intricate process because of the morphological peculiarities of the land and certain climatic conditions found in the Val do Salnés subzone. The most relevant of these is the abundant rainfall and humidity. The vines are grown on trellises, known as emparrado method, a common growing technique of the Rías Baixas region, reaching 6.5 feet high. The height helps protect the grapes from the soil's humidity and fungal diseases and favours a complete maturity of the grapes with the great exposure to the sun.  

Grape variety 

Albarino is considered the main white grape variety grown in Galicia, therefore Paco & Lola dominates the techniques to get the best extraction from this grape. Albariño is also an early-ripening variety, so the harvest usually begins in mid-September. It is well known for its exceptional sugar-producing at the time of ripening and most importantly, its high acidity. 

The results are brilliant and extremely good value for money. 

Fun Fact:

Paco & Lola have a sophisticatedly fun image developed through the creation of unique Polka-dot labels for some of their wines.
