The palate is fresh and smooth, with a well-balanced acidity which makes it very versatile with food!

About the Producer

Named for the beautiful flower that grows on Tenerife (which is also depicted on the labels), Tajinaste is one of the best producers of the Canary Islands

In the North of the island of Tenerife, in the majestic valley of La Orotova, between the volcano El Teide and the Atlantic Ocean, Bodega Tajinaste opened their doors in 1977 in the continuity of a long tradition of grape cultivation and wine making by the García Farráis family. They grow local varieties: Listán Negro and Listán Blanco on ancient vines, planted around 1914.

 

The vines grow on their own roots, according to a singular training system called "Cordones Multiples Trenzado" or "braided multiple Cords". Merging wine-making tradition and modern oenology, their work steeped in the family tradition is done with the greatest respect of the vineyard. Faithfully translating the trilogy of soil, variety and wine making, they produce unique and volcanic wine, that offers typicity, character, and a sense of terroir.

Sizzling prawns in garlic. Is there a more delicious combination out there that is this simple? Easy to prepare, the bigger the king prawns the better I say! Washed down with a chilled glass of Tajinaste it is absolute bliss!
