"Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non"

Translation: Padrón peppers, some are hot and some are not

Pimientos de Padrón
Blistered peppers, coarse sea salt

Named for the municipality of Padrón in the providence of Coruña in Spain’s North Western Galica, these beautiful sweet peppers are fried until the skin blistered and are generously sprinkled with sea salt. Sometimes spicy, 1 in 10 depending on the time of the year, they are perfectly addicting.

The tropical notes of Albariño, a variety also found in Galicia, will round out the spice and saltiness of the peppers. We recommend the Finca de Arantei with flavors of peaches, apricot, jasmine tea and wet stone. The flavors are equally rich and complemented by vibrant acidity, with a long and lasting finish.
