Tajinaste

Named for the beautiful flower that grows on Tenerife (which is also depicted on the labels),Tajinaste is run by the indefatigable Agustín García Farrais. He works alongside his parents, Cecila (“Chilla”) and Agustín Snr., who are both 70 years old going on 30.  The bodega was started by Agustín’s grandfather.  They own 3 hectares, and the oldest vines were planted in 1914.  In addition, they rent 9 hectares with 25-year contracts with their neighbors and buy grapes from another 16 hectares worth of vineyards, so the total under management is 28 hectares. 

Having trained in Bordeaux, Agustín is a precise winemaker. He vinifies each parcel separately, which has allowed him to get to know the character of each vineyard so well that he can masterfully blend extremely consistent and beguiling wines year after year.
