It is a photo of Luis Piqueras who established the family vineyards and started making jug wine in 1915. In 1927 his lottery spend of 8 pesetas brought him luck and he won! With his winnings he invested in the original Piqueras winery. Bodegas Piqueras is now run by his grand-sons together with his 2 great grand-sons, who are also now working in the Estate and Bodega. Fresh and crisp with intense citrus, lime and tropical notes and a persistent finish. Enjoy with fish and seafood, chicken, rice dishes, summer salads. Organic.
