A fun, bubblegum, salty, sea breezy rosé to take you to the volcanic island beaches of Tenerife. This crunchy rosé has a little reductive funk on the nose that quickly blows off with a swirl of the glass but provides a pleasant structured bite on the palate.

The winery was established in 1977, commercializing the Garćia Farráis family vineyards in the Orotava Valley on Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands. Some of the family’s oldest stocks of Listán negro and Listán blanco vines were planted in 1914, using a unique horizontal vine training system known as multiple braided cordon (cordón múltiple trenzado). Newer vineyards use the more common single- and double-Cordon (Royat) trellising systems. 

Working with indigenous varieties, the modern winery respects family and regional traditions, as well the unique geography - high-altitude vineyards - and volcanic soil of Tenerife, to create wines of great character and individuality. The Enologist is Agustin G. Farráis. 

In case you are wondering about the name of the winery, Tajinaste refers to a species of flowering plant, of the genus Echium, which is endemic to the Canary Islands, and in particular Tenerife. It grows high up on the slopes of Mount Teide, can reach up to 3 meters in height, and blooms a brilliant red in late spring and early summer.
