Once upon a time, Kendall-Jackson purchased a beautiful piece of property in Mendoza, Argentina, and there they built a state of the art facility. But because they did not employ any local laborers to build the winery, nor did they source any of the building materials locally, they were denied water access and therefore ultimately had to sell.
Patricia Ortiz now owns the winery, but she and her husband live an hour and a half away from the winery, so they are often apart for long stretches at a time. On the label is a depiction of a lone man, which is a representation of Patricia’s husband being alone. They decided to call the wine ‘Solo’ but when it went into production, there was a typo and it came out as Zolo. They liked it anyway and decided to keep the new name.
