Manuel Formigo (whose surname means "ant", hence the label) is a proud "c
ollieteiro," a Galician term for an independent farmer/winemaker who makes less than 7,000 cases of wine per year. From his family’s few acres of vines he has been making increasingly acclaimed wines on a tiny scale. This, his everyday white, brings the workhorse Palomino together with Manuel’s diverse selection of local varieties to become something special.
Serving Suggestion:  An exciting can of conservas – maybe cockles ("berberechos") or mussels in escabeche.  A plate of blacked, grilled veggies at a cookout, like shishitos or Galicia’s own Padrón peppers.
