Red. Native to the area of Carignan in France. It almost disappeared but it is gradually being recovered. It has features similar to Garnacha tinta but its berries are larger with thicker skin, darker color, and less sugar content. It produces wines with a clear vocation of aging in barrel and bottle, and for its high tannic it is used as a component for blending varieties like Garnacha and Tempranillo.


White. Scarce, it grows only in the Canary Islands (El Hierro, Tenerife) and Granada (Sierra de la Contraviesa-Alpujarra-). With good content on sugar and high in acidity, it offers great performance and disease resistance. Particularly suitable for making sparkling wine. The wines are fresh and fruity. It is also called Bujariego, Diego, Verijadiego, Vijariego, Vijiriego, Vujariego.

Vijariego Negro

Red. Little known grape, located almost exclusively on the island of Tenerife. Its clusters are medium size with thick, yellow-green, colorless juice, and neutral-herb flavour berries.


White. This variety originated in the northern Côtes du Rhône area. It is still used on a very small scale by Spanish wine-producers, but is likely to gain wider acceptance in the future, given that it is a grape of superb quality that grows well in warm regions.
