Envínate, Migan 2019
Pioneering volcanic mountain wine, high-toned and vibrant, with refreshing acidity. Ethereal.

Migan is a volcanic mountain wine, high-toned and vibrant, with smoky strawberry fruit balanced with fine tannins and refreshing acidity. Pair it with roasted meats and full-flavored seafood dishes.

Envínate (aka wine-yourself) is the brainchild of Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente, four friends who met while studying oenology at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante. Their philosophy is simple: let each single parcel fully express itself through old-fashioned farming and wine-making methods.
