Guerinda La Blanca

La Blanca is a homage to the one and only – our mother. It couldn’t be any other way.

Blanca was the daughter of Anselmo, a wrinkly-faced beret-wearing, traditional farmer who worked from sunrise to sunset and loved the land. He was downcast when he realised that neither of his two daughters, Blanca and Sagrario, were interested in the vines. In fact, Blanca preferred to work the cooperative’s scale rather than harvest grapes. Or, she’d happily load wine demijohns into her van to fill the wine shop, which she opened every day of the week. Anything but gathering pruned vine-shoots or harvesting.

Blanca may not have taught us about vines and vineyards, but of life lessons she’s given us plenty … and still is!
