/ DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITY /
The S.A.T. Bodegas Noroeste La Palma was founded on 26 December 1998 and began in 1999, when the first grape harvest was collected.
It is located in the Northwest region of the island of La Palma, and was created to collect and process the grapes of this region of the island, and to sell the wine production in this area. It started its adventure with 50 members in 1999, when the first harvest collected a total of 167,640 kilos of grapes. Currently it has 240 members, and the largest harvest was in 2009, collecting a total of 511,248 kilos of grapes.
The wine is marketed under the brand name “VEGA NORTE”, and the wine is obtained from the different varieties that are grown in this region of the island, which is marked by a high-mountain viticulture characterised by an altitude that mostly exceed 1000 and up to 1500 meters, and by large slopes.
The quality of the “Listán Prieto” variety is worth mentioning among the reds, and so is that of “Albillo” from the varieties of whites. The white wines are made with “Listán Blanco” and “Albillo”, and red wines with “Negramoll”, “Muñeco” or “Almuñeco” and “Listán Prieto”, and rosés with “Negramoll”.
