Vinatigo, founded by Juan J. Méndez in 1990, is dedicated to only planting grapes native to the Canary Islands.  All Vinatigo wines are single varietal and truly represent the terroir of the Canary Islands. Jean-Charles Abbatucci, a local celebrity in the capital of Corsica (Ajaccio), is a certified biodynamic producer. Founded in 1950, Abbatucci produces around 5,000 cases a year.
