La Araucaria Blanco is made from a single plot of Listan Blanco vineyards named “Hacienda Perdida” planted on Mount Teide’s northern slopes in the unique cordón trenzado (“braided cord”) method. The grapes were hand-harvested on the 9th of September, destemmed and skin-macerated for 8 days. The wine is then fermented in steel vat and rested on fine lees for 7 months, with bottling in the spring using natural (vegetal protein) clarification and a light filtration and 40 ppm’s of SO2 in total.
Dolores studied viticulture at the Escuela Capacitación Agraria in Tacoronte (East of La Orotava) and worked at Bodegas Monje as the head viticulturist for 10 years. In 2014 she decided to make her own wines, naming her project “La Araucaria” for a type of evergreen tree found in the Canary Islands, and specifically for the very large tree just outside her cellar that is depicted on her labels. Her husband Pedro helps out in the cellar, and a team of women (she believes women are more deft at picking grapes) help her with the harvest.
