Tajinaste

Tajinaste is run by the indefatigable Agustín García Farrais. He works alongside his parents, Cecila (“Chilla”) and Agustin Snr. who are both 70 years old going on 30. The bodega was started by Agustín’s grandfather. They own 3 hectares and rent 9 hectares w/ 25-year contracts with their neighbors. They buy grapes from another 16 hectares worth of vineyards, so the total under management is 28 hectares. The bodega is named for the beautiful flower that grows on Tenerife, depicted on the labels. Having trained in Bordeaux, Agustín is a precise winemaker. His oldest vines were planted in 1914. He vinifies each parcel separately, which has allowed him to get to know the true character of each vineyard such that he can masterfully blend extremely consistent and beguiling wines year after year.
