For almost 4 generations, Patrick Mata’s family produced wine in Malaga, Montilla, Sanlucar, Rioja and other Spanish regions. These wines were sold in many countries including the U.S. before and after Prohibition. During the 60’s, the demand of Malaga wines suffered greatly, which ultimately resulted in the Mata winery closing its doors in 1972. 

This wine pays tribute to the Mata winemaking heritage and specifically to Patrick’s father; the Gordo label is a replica of one of the family labels from the late 1800’s.
