The grapes come from the Esposende and Gomariz estate vineyards in the Avia River Valley, which are located in the D.O. Ribeiro within the Galicia region of Spain. The D.O. is located between the Rias Baixas to the west and Ribeira Sacra to the east. The vines for this wine are planted around Esposende and Gomariz municipalities on a combination of terraced plots known as socalos, and sloped plots orientated to maximize exposure to the sun. The soils in the region are granitic sands, known locally as sabrego, which warm up quickly and retain the heat. The region is greatly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean with relatively high rainfall and humidity, although its inland location shelters it from the impact of Atlantic storms. High levels of sunshine allow the grapes to reach excellent maturity levels, however the characteristic high acidity from the cooler influences, results in wines of great balance. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal maturity.

Ailala is a viticultural project created on the concept of being new, young, and fresh created by winemaker Inma Pazos and sommelier Miguel Montoto, who produce wines with a clear identity built around the concept of terroir. Produced from indigenous varieties, the wines highlight the character of the North West of Spain, where the strong, cooling Atlantic influence is combined with sustainable cultivation techniques to reflect the utmost care for the land. The result is a duo of indigenous, fun, and vibrant varietal wines with great personalities that come from this historic wine-producing region. Ailala is a Galician word, used in traditional folklore that has clear Celtic origins. Although it does not have a direct translation, is a cry of joy and fun: 'Ailala!, Ailalelo!', it’s the Galician equivalent of Ole!
