Francisco Javier García Núñez and his children founded Suertes del Marqués in 2006. The initial idea was to preserve the agricultural custom of the area, but time has positioned them as one of the most interesting wineries in the Canary Islands. Jonatan García Lima is the owner and visible face in charge of the winery.
The name of the winery partly tells of its origins. Formerly the parcels in the area were called “luck” and part of the land was once owned by a landowner.
The winery stands on an 11-hectare vineyard located in the middle of La Orotava (Las Suertes). The farm extends in altitude from 350 to 700 meters above sea level. Most of the vineyard is dominated by centennial strains of Listán black and white grown in the unique multiple cordon system. In the rest of the vineyard, young and old vines of autochthonous varieties (Pedro Ximénez, Tintilla, Baboso negro) grown on trellises and braided coexist.
