Creamy & Salty

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. Vijariego Blanco is a unique grape variety from the Canary Islands, whose main characteristics are its great adaptability to different environments and it's crazy acidity. At Viñátigo, Juan Jesus ferments and ages the juice in barrels, creating the perfect creaminess that balances the killer acidity.

On the nose, Vijariego Blanco has a high and well-balanced aromatic intensity. It has outstanding pear, vanilla and smoky undertones. Intense on the palate with a zippy freshness that is unique to this variety and a saltiness that comes from the volcanic soils.

Pair this wine with grilled fish or roasted chicken. It's creaminess and complexity will enhance the favours of the meal!

About the Winery


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).
