Envinate, Palo Blanco 2017Regular price $53.00 Save $-53.00
Variety: Listan Blanco
Four friends who met over a decade ago while studying enology at the University of Miguel Hernandez in Alicante (Spain) share a passion and mission to explore the ancient terruño of Spain’s temperate Atlantic coast appellations. It’s all very old-fashioned (and labor-intensive). They scout pristine vines that grow wild – no fancy trellises for this group! No chemicals. No machines or animals, only human hands. The unique Benje Blanco is a slightly oxidized white wine that the foursome describes as “a high-toned white wine, showing its volcanic terruño with smoky notes wrapped around the orchard fruit core, braced by Atlantic-infused high-elevation acidity.” Meet your natural wine guides: Laura Ramos (Murcia), Jose Martínez (Almansa), Roberto Santana (Canary Islands), and Alfonso Torrente (Ribeira Sacra).
Envinate, Migan Tinto 2018Regular price $53.00 Save $-53.00
Variety: Listan Negro
Envínate (Wine Yourself) has turned into a unicorn winery, producing wines people talk and read about but never can find or buy. The gang of four friends behind these bottles met while studying enology in Alicante, Spain. After graduating, they formed a wine consulting business to find lost, old vineyards and indigenous grapes and start producing wines from these sites and grapes. The aim has been no chemicals, handwork, and indigenous yeast only. The end product has been incredible and the sommelier world has latched on. Now the wines are in high demand but very little is produced. This bottling of Migan is coming from vines that have been braided on the Canary Islands at 600m above the sea. They are incredible with full-flavored seafood or roasted meats, but the personality of the insane volcanic soil is what sets them apart on the world stage.
