2022 was characterized as a cloudy vintage. Being close to the Sahara Desert, Global warming is becoming more of a concern each year, therefore having a cloudy vintage was a change that enabled more natural acidity to be retained in the wines. It also encouraged a slow ripening process, resulting in wines with freshness and tension, which was notable in the white grape vineyards, which are located close to the Atlantic Ocean, where the temperatures are warm in comparison to the medium-high altitude vineyards. These cloudy conditions combined with the influence of ocean breezes have imparted a fresh, salty character to the vintage.

Juan Jesus found a few Marmajuelo vines on the island of El Hierro and brought some vine shoots back to Tenerife. After micro-vinification, he was amazed at the result. The Marmajuelo vines grow close to the ocean below 250 metres where the temperatures are consistently between 21 to 23°C all year round and the influence of the sea breeze is constant. The absence of phylloxera in the Canary Islands has preserved many unique varieties, creating an unparalleled viticultural heritage. As a result, the vines are ungrafted, allowing for complete interaction between the plant and soil. The combination of the volcanic soils, the cooling Alisios trade winds, and the distinctive microclimates of the island contribute to the extraordinary personalities of the wines. The vineyard is managed sustainably without the use of herbicides or synthetic products. Due to the orography of the land, the vineyards are manually cultivated.
