Iñaki Garrido

Tenerife

Sometime before he came to Tenerife to live with his wife and daughter, Iñaki Garrido came across an old plot of Listán Blanco in the Valle de Güimar. The vines sit at an altitude of 1,400 metres, with some up to 200 years old and on original, ungrafted rootstocks that delve deep into the island’s famous volcanic soils.

Thrilled by his discovery, it didn’t take long for Iñaki to take the plunge, and he quickly rented the vineyard from its owner to create his own wines from this fascinating terroir.

Iñaki uses two 500-litre barrels: one from Austria and one from France. Vinifiaction takes place in a small space in Suertes Del Marques, a newly built winery in La Orotrava belonging to his friend Jonatan García.

His one cuvée, Las Toscas, is focused and racy in character and ends on a mouth-wateringly saline finish.
