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.
One of Envinate's newer bottlings, the 'La Santa' vineyards can be found in Tacorante Acentejo on the northern part of Tenerife. The plots are mostly comprised of sandy clay over red basalt. The grapes see partial carbonic maceration and are then aged in neural French barrels for about 8 months.
