Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos and José Martínez are the 4 winemakers of Envínate. They had started to give onologic advice but decided to combine it with their own wines in the same areas they also advise. Their philosophy is to create fresh fresh wines from local grapes that reflect the unique terroir and atlantic climate. The results speak for themselves: honest and interesting wines. Very interesting wines are made on the Canary Island. Vineyards at higher altitudes and the Atlantic Ocean provide healthy, fresh wines

The Benje Blanco comes from the south of Tenerife and was produced with Listán Blanco, the local variety of Palomino. Benje is the name of a nearby crater, where the Listan Blanc comes from. This is a mix of different plots with very old vines at high altitude, 900 to 1,100 meters above sea level. 50% of the volume is aged in concrete tanks under a veil of yeasts (flor). The remainder was aged in used 228-litre oak casks with the lees (sur lie), then blended and bottled. This has a lot of character, mixing the varieties with volcanic notes. Very light in color and slightly veiled. Lively, fresh and mineral. Sleek in scent, which is also reflected on the palette. Complex glass with a nice acidity and volcanic touch. Serve at around 11-12°C in a white Burgundy type glass.

Vineyard for 2022 Envinate Benje Blanco

Envínate (translates as "wine itself") is the brainchild of 4 friends, winemakers Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos and José Martínez. This gang of four was founded in 2005 while studying oenology at the University of Miguel Hernandez in Alicante. After graduating, they formed a winemaking consultancy, which evolved into Envínate, a project focused on exploring distinctive plots of land, mainly in the Atlantic regions of Ribeira Sacra and the Canary Islands. Their shared goal is to make very pure and authentic wines that express the terruño of each parcel in a clear and concise way. To this end, no chemicals are used in any of the Envínate vineyards, all plots are picked by hand, the grapes are trodden and the wines are fermented exclusively with wild yeasts, with a varying proportion of whole grape bunches included. Before maturing, the wines are aged in old barrels and concrete, and sulfur is only added at bottling when necessary. The result is some of the most exciting and honest wines produced in Spain today.
