Ailalá is a viticultural project created on the concept of being new, young and fresh

created by winemaker Inma Pazos and sommelier Miguel Montoto, who produce wines

with a clear identity built around the concept of terroir. Produced from indigenous

varieties, the wines highlight the character of the North West of Spain, where the strong,

cooling Atlantic influence is combined with sustainable cultivation techniques reflect the

utmost care for the land. The result is a duo of indigenous, fun and vibrant varietal

wines with great personality that come from this historic wine producing region. Ailalá is

a Galician word, used in traditional folklore that has clear Celtic origins. Although it

does not have a direct translation, is a cry of joy and fun: ‘Ailalá!, Ailalelo!’, it’s the

Galician equivalent of Olé!

The grapes come from a selection of parcels in estate vineyards in the Avia River Valley,

which are located in the D.O. Ribeiro within the Galicia region of Spain. The D.O. is

located between the Rias Baixas to the west and Ribeira Sacra to the east. The grapes

for this wine come from the municipalities of A Xarmenta en San Cristóbal and Pazo

Lodeiro in San Fiz Do Varón. The vines are planted on a combination of terraced plots

known as socalos, and sloped plots orientated to maximise exposure to the sun. The

soils in the region are granitic sands, known locally as sábrego, which warm up quickly

and retain the heat. The region is greatly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean with

relatively high rainfall and humidity, although its inland location shelters it from the

impact of Atlantic storms. High levels of sunshine allow the grapes to reach excellent

maturity levels, however the characteristic high acidity from the cooler influences, results

in wines of great balance. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal maturity.
