"Envínate (aka wine-yourself) is the brainchild of Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente, four friends who met while studying oenology at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante. They focus on exploring the ancient, Atlantic-influenced terruños of Ribeira Sacra, The Canary Islands and Almansa. Their philosophy is simple: let each parcel fully express itself through traditional farming and wine-making methods. Right now there are four different projects under the Envínate umbrella: Lousas overseen by Alfonso Torrente in Ribeira Sacra, Táganan and Benje by Roberto Santana in Tenerife, and Albahra in Almansa by Laura Ramos and José Martínez. These are some of Indigo’s most unique and special wines, and some are only made in tiny quantities, so grab them while you can!"
"This wine is made from Garnacha Tintorera and Moravia Agria grapes grown at 800 metres altitude, and fermented with 40% whole bunches in large concrete tanks. Marked by ripe, earthy fruit, dusty tannins and fresh acidity, it’s an approachable and highly enjoyable wine. It’s also very versatile with food (we especially enjoy if with a nice plate of charcuterie and grilled meats). Perfect for a long, leisurely lunch." - Indigo Wine
