Envinate, which translates as “wine yourself,” is the project of four passionate young winemakers: Roberto Santana, Jose Martinez, Laura Ramos and Alfonso Torrente. The four met while studying oenology in Alicante in 2005 and formed a collective based on a shared philosophy of wine and a desire to explore the ancient, Atlantic influenced terroirs of western Spain.

In 2008, the group bought their first vineyard in Ribera Sacra, then took control of vineyards on the north of Tenerife and followed by a single patch of Tinta Amarela in Extremadura. Finally, in 2012, they began working a site in Almansa,  planted with Garnacha Tintorera. In each place, the team care for old abandoned vineyards and move frequently around the country.

Envínate Benje is a wine made from Listán Prieto and Tintilla from different old vineyards aged between 70 and 120 years old, located at 1,000 metres of altitude, planted on volcanic soils.

They are manually harvested and placed in 16-kg boxes, with grape selection in the vineyard. When they arrive at the winery, each plot is vinified separately. The grapes, without destemming, macerate in cold before they ferment with native yeasts in different kinds of deposits (cement, open vats, French oak barrels). After fermenting in French oak barrels, this wine is aged for around 8 months. It is bottled without adding SO2, without clarifying or filtering.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
