Hailing from the Canary Islands, Galicia, Extremadura and Almansa, winemakers Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez met while studying oenology at The Miguel Hernández University of Elche. In 2005, after graduating, they formed a wine consultancy and later Envínate, with the goal of expressing the distinctive terroirs of Spain and its Atlantic coastline.
Each member of the Envínate collective brings his or her unique strengths to the group, coming together to create a product that transparently and beautifully reflects each oceanic terroir.
What makes Envínate special is its completely natural winemaking process, identical and consistent in each of Envínate’s four winemaking facilities. The team uses absolutely no chemicals in their process – all parcels are hand-picked, grapes are foot-trodden, and wines are fermented exclusively with wild yeasts.
With a focus on the Atlantic regions of Galicia’s Ribeira Sacra and the Canary Islands, Envinate is responsible for making some of Spain’s most compelling and elegant vintages.
