The winery and independent wine production started only in 2006, but the family has been growing grapes for over 30 years in the Valle de La Orotava (Tenerife).

The family opted for the use of native varieties and traditional vine training methods. In order to preserve a viticulture and wine-making heritage that dates back five centuries old.

The vineyards are treated using only natural products when vine diseases eventually arise, and any systemic treatments in the vineyards are avoided.

7 Fuentes is made a blend of 90% Listan Negro and 10% Tintilla made from 35 vineyard plots with vines ranging from 10 to 180 years old approximately. The altitude of the vineyards vary from 250 to 800m above sea level. Each of the parcels is vinified separately and is assembled only before bottling.

The wine is fermented with indigenous yeast in concrete tanks, and aged for 9 months in 70% concrete tanks and 30% oak foudres of 500L. Bottled with low levels of sulfites.
