Patinegro is the second wine in the Barbadillo Singular organic range, and is named after the patinegro, or Kentish plover, a bird whose population is in decline and that lives in coastal areas and nests in dune areas and wetlands. This is therefore a wine born as a proclamation, reminding us of the need to take care of ecosystems like our coastal areas, which are so extraordinary and to which we owe so much, including our landscape, our culture and of course, our harvests with their hints of sea air.
Patinegro is a dry, organic white wine, 100% palomino, from two vineyards: one close to the sea and the other located further inland on a hilltop overlooking the marshes between Sanlúcar and Trebujena. The wine therefore carries the blend of both the maritime influence and that of the Guadalquivir River and the marshes.

VINEYARDS AND HARVEST
The grapes come exclusively from two albariza vineyards, which have been managed under the organic farming system for more than 15 years.
The first is close to the sea in Sanlúcar, with vines that are more than 35 years old, and it has been organic for the last 17 years. The other vineyard is further inland, located on a hilltop overlooking the marshes between Sanlúcar and Trebujena.
This vineyard is more than 25 years old and has also been certified organic for more than 12 years. By using grapes from these two vineyards, we unite the maritime influence with that of the Guadalquivir River and the marshes.
