Bodegas Viñátigo | Tenerife
The philosophy behind Bodegas Viñátigo is to revive and promote the heritage of the extensive indigenous grapes found on the Canary Islands. The journey started in the 1990s, at a century-old plot in the village of La Guancha, to the north of Tenerife, where the traditional grape varieties of Listán Blanco and Listán Negro were vinified in the old family winery. With an uncompromising eye on quality, this dynamic winemaking project has subsequently expanded to produce thrilling, modern wines from varieties such as Gual, Marmajuelo and Vijariego. Bodegas Viñátigo’s ethos is respectful of the environment, both in the vineyard where sustainable wine-growing practices are applied; and in the construction of its state-of-the-art winery which was built in 1997 from local materials and designed to minimise energy consumption.
