About Ignios Origenes Vijariego Negro

Ignios Origenes Vijariego Negro is fermented in steel tank and aged in 1,500 liter foudre. This wine will enchant you with clove, balsamic, and medicinal notes.

This special red comes from a revived vineyard at 780m altitude in the shadow of Mount Teide on Tenerife, planted to the distinctive local Canary Island variety Vijariego Negro (better known to Spanish wine lovers as Sumoll). Truly a treat on the nose and the palate, with notes of spicy red and blackberries, savory herbs, and a dense underpinning of mineral-infused volcanic earth.

About Ignios Origenes

The Ignios Orígenes wines are striking and intensely memorable expressions of the terroir and indigenous grapes of Tenerife. These wines are smoky, mineral, and salty – seemingly capable of transporting the taster to the volcanic island from which they come. For me, these are some of the most exciting wines from the Canary Islands, and among the best examples of what winemakers there are capable of.

Borja Pérez González, a native of La Guancha in Tenerife, organically farms the indigenous varieties Listán Negro, Baboso Negro, Vijariego Negro, and Marmajuelo on his family’s farm in the Ycoden-Daute-Isora DO. He purchased the farm and began the Ignios Orígenes project in 2011, and has been steadily improving the vineyards and his agricultural practices since. As is often the case on the Canary Islands, Borja Perez’s vines are own-rooted (rather than grafted on American rootstock), farmed entirely by hand, and untouched by chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. In the cellar, Borja employs sulfur only at bottling and uses very little.
