Envinate - Benje Tinto, Tenerife (2020)
Enviate is a collaboration between four friends from four different regions of Spain, the Canary Islands, Galicia, Extremadura and Almansa. Winemakers Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez met while studying oenology and formed a wine consultancy and later Envínate, with the goal of expressing the distinctive terroirs of Spain and its Atlantic coastline. What makes Envínate special is its completely natural winemaking process, identical and consistent in each of Envínate’s four winemaking facilities. The team uses absolutely no chemicals in their process – all parcels are hand-picked, grapes are foot-trodden and wines are fermented exclusively with wild yeasts. Sulphur is only added to the wine prior to bottling, if necessary.
Organic, sustainable, vegan.
