Méntrida, like other famous wine regions of La Mancha, is steeped in history. The vines here grow under bright blue Castilian skies in a landscape which enjoys spectacular views of the snowy mantle of the Sierra de Gredos. The character of the wines produced here, tough and honest, were always enjoyed by the Habsburg Dynasty in Madrid. That being said, a new generation of wine is emerging, albeit at a slower rate than other regions in Spain, renovating wineries with modern equipment with a generation of young winemakers who are producing pleasant and balanced wines, some have even managed to recover the local flavour of its wines using the classic earthenware jars, now appreciated and fashionable in other areas.
Canopy is a young winery focused on the rediscovery of the old terroir of Méntrida as the origin of unique wines. It is a reference to the terroir, to wines created from the vineyard, at 750 metres of altitude, in the Sierra de San Vicente, between the valleys of rivers Tajo and Tietar. These vines are subject to a beneficial micro-climate that truly shows at night, when the temperatures go down and the aromas are set in the old Grenache vines, alongside modern Syrah plantations, just like authentic vine gardens, perfectly adjusted to a hard and demanding region.
