Bodegas Canopy is a young project born in 2004 on the initiative of two winemaking friends with very different personalities, Alfonso Chacón Gil and Belarmino Fernández Bombín.
At that time the D.O. Méntrida (Toledo) did not enjoy a good reputation. Traditionally specialized in bulk production, there were hardly any wineries where quality wines were bottled. However, Alfonso and Belarmino opted for it because it fulfilled two indispensable conditions for its purposes: an old vineyard based on the Garnacha variety and some land with certain special characteristics.
Alfonso and Belarmino have implemented a minimally interventionist sustainable viticulture that allows siliceous-granitic soils to be fully expressed. In Canopy they are convinced that they have to explore the differentiating character of the raw material, Garnacha. Therefore, they use barrels of greater volume -500, 700, 1,500 and 2,000 liters – because they believe that the wood should only accompany and enhance the fruit, improving its freshness and enhancing the minerality of these unique wines.
