The grapes were refrigerated to between -5 and 0°C upon arrival at the winery, to avoid the use of sulfur during vinification until the end of fermentation. Each variety was fermented separately with indigenous yeasts. Some of the varieties were fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats, others uniquely in stainless steel tanks, and the remainder in French oak barrels. The final blend seeks to showcase a balance between freshness, tension, and fruit, respecting the identity of each variety and their origins from the distinctive volcanic soils.

The vineyards are greatly influenced by the Atlantic breezes, locally known as ‘Vientos Alisios’, which affects both low-altitude vineyards, resulting in savory and saline characters in the wines, and the high-altitude vineyards where the winds generate freshness and natural acidity. The average annual rainfall varies between 200mm in coastal vineyards, to 500mm per year in mid to high-altitude areas. The vineyards are planted with ungrafted vines due to the absence of phylloxera. Sustainable cultivation is employed, synthetic preparations, herbicides, and pesticides are not used, instead, the disease is prevented with natural products. Regenerative viticulture takes place by working the soils, which helps to maintain soil health and biodiversity. The plots comprise different types of volcanic soils: from the young soils where stony components allow the roots to delve deep to find sustenance, to the soils made up of old, colluvial, and alluvial deposits derived from the erosion of the massifs that typify the orography of the Northwest of Tenerife. The grapes are hand-harvested into 18-20 kg cases.
