CURIOSITY

THE COOL LABEL IS FEATURING A FAT PIG (GRAN CERDO IN SPANISH) IS A NOD TO THE DIFFICULTIES THAT OCCURRED DURING HIS FIRST VINTAGE. NEEDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO COMPLETE THE HARVEST, GONZALO TURNED TO THE BANK. THE APPLICATION WAS DECLINED ON THE BASIS THAT WINE WAS NOT REGARDED AS SUITABLE SECURITY FOR THE LOAN AS IT COULD NOT BE SEIZED IF REPAYMENTS WERE NOT MADE ON TIME.
FORTUNATELY, FRIENDS STEPPED IN TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND THE WINE WAS WELL RECEIVED

CURIOSITY

THE LABEL FEATURES A FAT PIG (GRAN CERDO IN SPANISH) AND IS A NOD TO THE DIFFICULTIES THAT OCCURRED DURING GONZALO’S FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION. NEEDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO COMPLETE THE HARVEST, GONZALO TURNED TO THE BANK. THE APPLICATION WAS DECLINED ON THE BASIS THAT WINE WAS NOT REGARDED AS SUITABLE SECURITY FOR THE LOAN, BECAUSE IT COULD NOT BE SEIZED IF REPAYMENTS WERE NOT MADE ON TIME. FORTUNATELY, FRIENDS STEPPED IN TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND THE WINE WAS WELL RECEIVED.
