Tropical & 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.

This is a blend of native white varieties from the Canary Islands. Depending on the conditions vintage the proportions and grapes blended in this wine will vary. The grapes are harvested and vinified separetely. Some of them, such as Marmajuelo or Gual, grow near the Ocean and are normally harvested in early August. Vijariego Blanco is cultivated at much higher altitude, and it is not picked until late October. Once all varieties are fermented and aged independently, the Ensamblaje is blended.

This white blend is extremely aromatic, when aromas of honey and tropical fruits, such as apricot. On the palate it has a vibrant acidity and an incredible volcanic minerality. The taste adds dramatic lime, honeysuckle, banana and guava. 

Perfect when paired with fresh fish dishes such as ceviche or seafood.

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).
