Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos and José Martínez are the 4 winemakers of Envínate. They had started to provide oenological advice, but decided to combine this with their own wines in the same areas in which they also advise. Their philosophy is to create fresh, crisp wines from local grapes that reflect the unique terroir and Atlantic climate. The results speak for themselves: honest and interesting wines.

Táganan is the name of the village where the vineyards (northwest on volcanic surfaces) are found. These vineyards are located closer to the coastline. Taganan is a blend of different terroirs in Tacaronte (Tenerife). The red Táganan comes from different plots, mainly planted with Listán Negro and Negramoll and also some Mulata, Listán Gacho (pink/rosé) and Malvasía Rosada. It fermented at 50% to 70% as bunches depending on the plot and aged for a year in well-seasoned 50-gallon neural oak barrels. The taste is lively, long and fresh, with fine tannins and deeper and very layered with aromas of subtle pepperiness, sesame, grapefruit and a positive hint of some earthiness. A beautiful wine of which there are always only a very limited number of bottles. In an average year around 2,500 maximum and often less. This Taganan is a collector's item. A red super wine with Atlantic Sea injection. Parker writes in his review: "A real triumph"

Vineyard for 2022 Envinate Taganan Tinto

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.
