Canopy was born as a project of 2 winemakers friends, wine professionals in the world of business and hotel trade:  Alfonso Chacón y Belarmino Fernández. Two very different personalities coming together to achieve their little dream: to make a quality wine from the vineyard.  

It all begins in 2004 with the selection of vineyards and a commitment to the Mentrida PDO in Toledo that has old vineyards based mainly in the variety Garnacha and some lands with very special characteristics.

The cultivation of the vine is based in a commitment to the ecosystem and sustainable development. We do not use synthetic products on processes, fertilizer amounts are virtually zero and the soil is worked by faring techniques of scarce deepness. In addition to this, due to its strong Mediterranean-continental climate, the vineyards do not need many treatments or pesticides, so we merely apply sulfur several times a year.

After aging the wine is slightly clarified with egg albumin.    Subsequently, we do not stabilize or filter with the aim of ensuring its maximum expression. The coopage of each brand is defined by the characteristics of the year and respecting the desired profile:  Tres Patas is a wine marked by the Garnache and Malpaso and shows a white dominant Syrah.

The first year production, 2004, was limited to 30,000 bottles of 0.75 liters. Our goal is to increase production when we can ensure the highest quality of the grape.
In 2005, the results were excellent, which makes us look to the future with optimism.
