The Tajinaste Winery emerged in 1977 as a generational changeover to a wine-growing tradition of the García Farráis family. The vineyards are included in the Denomination of Origin Valle de La Orotava. The oldest strains, of the Listán Negro and Listán Blanco varieties, were planted around 1914, with a unique conduction system called “Multiple braided cord”. For several years the winery has been working on the cultivation of autochthonous varieties in simple cordon and Royat, which will soon give fruit to new projects.
Faithfully representing the trilogy: soil, variety and elaboration, a compendium of characteristic sensations has been achieved, which give great personality to our vinifications. Preserving its family origin, they work with the utmost respect for the vineyard, trying to merge viticultural tradition and modern oenology, thus achieving a great typicality in the wines, this being the factor that unites and stands out. The Tajinaste Winery has more than a hundred awards in its history that prove the love and good work with which they make their wines.
