FRIEND AND FARMER Verdejo
Friend and Farmer is the dream of three brothers, Francisco, Javier and Luis Parra. The hope was to
celebrate their beloved home of La Mancha by raising organically and biodynamically grown grapes.
When it comes to the winemaking behind Friend and Farmer, they partnered with the exceptional and
renown Juan Antonio Ponce of Bodegas Ponce. The Parra brothers work two vineyards near the town of Las Mesas. One is Entresendas (“between paths”) sitting in a dry river bed. These rich, alluvial soils are perfect for the cultivation of grapes reflecting light and heat and ensuring drainage. The other vineyard is Olla del Monte is perhaps easily
represented by its other name: Cuesta Colorá, the colored slope. This slope is covered in chalky clay and
a fine layer of pebbles on the surface that capture and radiate the heat of the sun—a key benefit during
the desert nights. This style of Verdejo is different than most due to these unique factors.
The Friend & Farmer wines are Demeter and vegan certified with no to very low (under 20ppm) sulfites
added. All vines are worked by hand, and fermentation is with indigenous yeast. 100% Organic Verdejo

picked in cool, early morning hours. Fermentation with yeast selected from the vineyard, and the
natural wine is fully spontaneous.
