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.
Taganan is a unicorn wine from the unicorn winery. Coming from 100-300 year old vines, Taganan is the native Canary word for “slope,” coming from wild vines growing on the sides of cliffs with pure volcanic rock. The vines are phylloxera-free and growing on their own roots. Parcela Margalagua is a single parcel from the Taganan area in the Canary Islands. The grapes are historically planted with several varieties, and co-ferment whole cluster in French oak barrels for eleven months. Envinate considers “Margalaua” a grand cru site.
