Where and How?
Táganan is the name of the region in northern Tenerife in which the vineyards for this wine are planted.
A blend of many different indigenous Spanish varieties, the wine was vinified in separate parcels – some were pressed directly and some underwent a short period of skin contact. The wine was then aged in stainless steel and old oak barrels for eight months. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and with just a touch of sulphur.
Going to school and university is about a lot more than education; they give birth to friendships and business ideas. In the case of Envínate, it was at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante that Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente met while studying oenology. This quartet of bright minds did not have family-owned wineries behind them, but they did have a joint love for organic viticulture and low intervention winemaking.
In the Beaujolais region, there is a group of winemakers nicknamed the Gang of Four who revived organic viticulture and quality winemaking in the region in the 80s. Well, this is the Spanish Gang of Four. Together their efforts have put the indigenous varieties of northern Spain on the map of fine wine.
