Benje Blanco is made from pure Listan Blanco grapes from different vineyards between 70 and 110 years old on free-range vines grown as small trees on sandy volcanic soils at altitudes between 900 and 1200 metres. We are in Santiago del Teide, Tenerife, and some of these soils are covered by pyroclastic ash from the last eruption of the Chinyero volcano in 1909.

Parcel vinification with destemming and rapid 12-24 hour maceration is followed by spontaneous fermentation in cement vats. Ageing of 8 months sur lies takes place 80% in cement and 20% in a 25 hl oval cask, with a part under flor veil.

Envinate - Tenerife

Envinate

Envinate are 4 heads and 8 hands, those of Laura Ramos, Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente and José Martinez. But they are also 3 distinct projects that arise in as many incredible and dreamlike Spanish viticultural archaeo-sites of exceptional charm and suggestion: the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, the Amandi sub-region of the Ribeira Sacra in Galicia and the Almansa-Manchuela area in the extreme southeast of Castilla-León.
Each of these gives rise to different wines, strongly characterful and to say the least singular, with marked distinctive features that only Nature could paint so perfectly. The snapshots of these vineyards are in fact paintings
to be enjoyed in prolonged vision, they are images of still life, artifacts of primitive authors, lean and dense at the same time as are the wines that embody the place, projecting it beyond what it represents. Precise composition of vertiginous slopes, via ferratas, canyons, stacks, desert, volcanoes, fissured rocks, suspended lands and very ancient farming systems that seem to dance, crawling and flirting with the earth and the sky, then disappearing underground. The four friends met at the University of Alicante, became winemakers – undoubtedly shaped by the beauty of the lands they work – are now an extraordinary ensemble that works in synergy with the peasant populations and local cultures and that we offer you in these few pages.
