Our goal is continuous work - collaboration to find the balances, the alternatives, the methods for our placement in nature, in our direct contact with the means of production and nutrition, in our dominance over every food resource, in the promotion of friendship with man and the environment of agriculture and animal husbandry, in sustainability. The Spira Gi group chose as its legal form that of the Social Cooperative Enterprise. The form of Social Cooperative or Social Cooperative Enterprise (Coin.S.Ep) is a new legal possibility in Greece introduced by law 4019/11. Coin.S.Ep is the main body of the Social Economy, i.e. the space that lies between the public and the private sector, the one that is usually called the third sector of the economy. In addition to the K.S.Ep, many other organizations are active in this area, such as associations and unions, cooperatives and networks, non-governmental organizations, etc. with the basic characteristic that they are grassroots ventures of civil society. The basic principles of a Social Cooperative Enterprise are the group - cooperative that establishes and operates it, its social character and purpose, its viability as an economic but non-profit unit. These businesses are created and registered/published in the Social Economy Register of the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Welfare. We aim to promote local and collective interest, to promote employment, to strengthen social cohesion and local or regional development.

We are located in the rural town of A Arnoia, province of Ourense - Galicia - SPAIN, therefore, our wines are within the RIBEIRO Denomination of Origin. At the moment we have 4 different wines: • Villa Paz is the winery's majority wine and best-seller. • Eloi Lorenzo fermented in barrel with the Lado variety. • Lonxe is a farm wine fermented in 100% Treixadura barrel. • Sunne 100% Brancellao barrel. Javier Monsalve, a viticulturist, and oenologist, is committed to producing natural wines from his harvest with a selection of the best noble and native varieties, obtaining as a result small but high- quality production of wines.
