We scrupulously respect the oenological potential of each variety. We vinify each one separately, harvesting at the right moment of maturation and not using aggressive elaboration methods or oenological synthesis aids or genetically modified. The harvest is manual and the grapes are transported avoiding all kinds of oxidation or unwanted fermentation starts.
In 2012, the wine project of our winery began to forge, with the idea of producing wines that value those native grape varieties that possess the greatest oenological potential.
The absence of the fearsome phylloxera has made it possible for the Canary Islands to keep many vine varieties unique in the world. As a consequence, the entire vineyard is free, which partly explains the marked minerality of our elaborations. This together with the adaptation of the varietals to the numerous microclimates, give them an extraordinary personality and unique qualities. The wines of Bodegas El Sitio are exceptionally unique, “different by nature“.
