The Piedra Fluida project came into being with the aim of being a guardian of biodiversity After starting to purchase spectacular vineyards in 2016 and after hard work recuperating and protecting them, the first limited vintage was released in 2018. It is a core part of founder, Mr. Felix Becker's, strategy to protect and strengthen the conservation of the natural environment and generate economic development in the Canary Islands. This encompasses agricultural production, organic products, livestock production, restoration, ecotourism real estate and organic wine production. 26 hectares of ancient, high altitude, un-grafted vines stretching up to the highest vineyards in Europe at 1687 metres. The indigenous red grape, Lista Negro, is planted on the northern slopes of Mount Teide with the whites, made from Listan Blanco, the local name for Palomino, planted in the drier, higher Southern side. Vineyards are tended in the ancestral way - by hand and animal - with no machine access possible to these old parcels and terroirs.
Managing the winery is the oenologist Gabriel Morales, native from Tenerife with more than 20 years’ experience and a true expert in viticulture in the Canary Islands & working with unique native varieties there. The wine making is managed by the very talented oenologist Loreto Pancorbo, originally form Rioja with experience making wines in Napa Valley, New Zealand and Rioja, now 2nd year MW candidate.
