The winery’s philosophy is based on making artisanal wines, using the least amount of machinery possible both in cultivating the grapes and in producing the wine. The grapes were grown using organic farming methods, and, for the 2017 harvest, we even fertilized each grapevine with manure by hand. We did not use any sort of machinery to de-stem the grapes: they were de-stemmed by hand.
Our wines are in the process of becoming organic wines.
They have been subjected to the agrifood laboratory and phytopathological controls of the Cabildo of Gran Canaria.
The guided tour takes you on a visit of our vineyards. The tour starts with a walk to the wine press room, where we explain the winery’s history, the grape harvest and the wine-making process. Then we move on to the museum to get a look at old photos and see what the grape harvest process and machinery were like in the olden days. Afterward, we’ll visit the vineyard where visitors can contemplate the different grape varieties and the characteristics of the soil and climate. Then, we’ll visit the old wine cellar with its barrels and its altar with the wood carving of Saint John, for whom our winery was named. Lastly, we’ll offer a wine tasting in our in our hall of events.
