Balsamic & Mineral

Juan Jesús, who is a 4th generation winemaker, founded Viñátigo in 1990 and has worked tirelessly since then identifying, recuperating the native grapes of the Canary Islands.

Baboso Negro is a grape variety that Juan Jesus found in the island of El Hierro in the early 2000's. He recuperated it with a micro-winery he established on the island, and in 2006, he planted a small plot in Tenerife. The Baboso Negro's clusters are very small and delicate, but yield very complex and full-bodied wines. On the nose, Baboso Negro develops aromas of delicate violet flowers, dark chocolate and balsamic notes. On the palate, it has a big and bold structure.

Pair with big meals: steaks, coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon...

About the Winery

Viñátigo

Juan Jesús is a proud native of Tenerife and the fourth generation of growers. During the thirty years that he's overseen Bodegas Viñátigo, he has considerably increased its holdings, planting varieties that he and his team recuperated from near extinction.

Driven by passion and love for his homeland, Juan decided to revive and work to save the native grape varieties that were brought to the Canary Islands by the conquers back in the 15th century and that had survived on the islands for centuries. He is a hero of contemporary Canarian viticulture. The wealth of knowledge that his work has created has helped underpin the significant expansion of wine styles that are now available throughout the archipelago, and his wines have achieved a calibre of class that many doubted the Canaries would ever produce again. (The Epic Wines of the Canary Islands, written by Santo Bains).
