Protos Verdejo

¿Which Protos to pair it with?


In this dish the earthy tastes of the cucumber, cilantro and beet bring forward the secondary notes of herbs that are so typical of the Verdejo grape variety. The freshness of this dish together with the freshness of our wine; will make this experience the perfect ending for these summer days.
