Overview

Bimbache sources their red grapes from the sunny and semi-arid southern part of El Hierro. Here the soils are mixed volcanic sands, ash, and clay. These are traditionally planted sites meaning that there are probably dozens of varieties that end up in the blend but the majority is Listán Negro with small amounts of Vijariego Negro, Listán Prieto, and everything else. It is fermented and aged in tank and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
