Overview

From a single, sixty-year-old vineyard named Piedra Juan situated on sandy, volcanic soils in the municipality of La Frontera, John Stone is a steep site with dramatic views of the crescent-shaped El Golfo. Planted with Vijariego Blanco (better known in the Canaries as Diego) and Listán Blanco, this site bears the full brunt of the nearly constant trade winds.  This site is harvested by hand, fermentation begins by natural yeasts in tank and finishes in French oak barrels leaving a small space at the top for the development of a thin layer of flor.
