Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Suertes del Marqués El Chiribique 2017 is a single plot red wine made with the native Listan Negro variety in the D.O. Valle de la Orotava by the Suertes del Marqués winery.

In 2006, Francisco Javier García Núñez and his son set up Suertes del Marqués. A project that aims to revive the area’s winemaking tradition in the most respectful way. A total of 11 hectares of vineyards located in the volcanic La Orotava valley where each plot is analysed, monitored, cultivated and vinified separately to achieve maximum expression.

Suertes del Marqués El Chiribique comes from a small 0.4 hectare vineyard lying at about 400 metres above sea level. The vines are aged between 60 and 80 years old, planted on volcanic soil and trained using the braided cord system. Their agriculture respects the environment and the harvest is completely manual.

To make Suertes del Marqués The Chiribique, fermentation takes place with native yeasts in open plastic tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 500-litre Allier French oak barrels. Finally, it ages for 10 months in the same kind of barrels with capacities of 500 and 228 litres.

Suertes del Marqués El Chiribique is a small production from a small plot that reveals Tenerife’s minerality, intensity and purity.

Since the very beginning in 2006, this small and family-run winery has opted for the native varieties of the area and the use of traditional training methods of Valle de la Orotava, thus preserving the rich winegrowing heritage of this region, which goes back five centuries. Valle de la Orotava is considered the origin of the vineyards on the island of Tenerife. Today, a large part of the identity of the wines from Suertes del Marqués, both whites and reds, are based on the unique expression of the native variety Listán.
Pictures and situation Suertes del Marqués
Tenerife, with an area of 2,034km2, is the largest and most populous of the Canary Islands, known internationally as the “island of eternal spring”. This island also unites the most wine DOs, among them the DO Valle de la Orotava, where today the identity of its wines, whites and reds, are based on the particular and unique character of the native Listán grape variety.
