Envínate (aka wine-yourself) is the project of Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente, four friends who met while studying oenology at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante. Their work is currently focused on exploring the ancient, Atlantic-infused terruños of Ribeira Sacra, Canary Islands, Extremadura and Almansa. Their philosophy is simple: let each single parcel fully express itself through old-fashioned farming and wine-making methods.

Albahra is made from Garnacha Tintorera and Moravia Agria grapes grown at 800 metres altitude and fermented with 40% whole bunches in large concrete tanks. Marked by ripe, earthy fruit, dusty tannins and fresh acidity, it’s an approachable and enticing wine that speaks of the Almansa terroir.
