Extraordinary wine here. Salty, citrusy, fresh, fragrant, textured… Such a great drink.
From 100 year old vines in the Valle de la Orotava, on the northern side of the island. The combination of altitude, climate and volcanic soils create a wine with extraordinary character and texture; this is what winemaker Roberto refers to as a ‘vertical wine’. Saline, citrus, herbal, mineral… a wine that demands an unending list of adjectives.

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.
