Vineyards carved out of volcanic rock create wines unlike any other.

“We were captivated by the wine growing process and astonished with the quality of wines,”

Direct importer, Gold Medal Wine Club introduces three, unique wines from the Canary Islands never before available in the US.”

The three wines include the El Lomo 2018 Listán Blanco, the Candido Hernandez Pio 2017 Red Blend, and the El Grifo 2016 Listán Negro. Gold Medal Wine Club is currently offering them for sale in their web-based Wine Store.

The seven-island archipelago of the Canary Islands is a grape growing location unlike any other in the world. Formed by volcanic eruptions, the islands possess a rugged, rocky terrain and the potential for future volcanic activity. The grapes are planted at high elevations, on steep volcanic hillsides, facing extreme winds. Due to its isolation as individual volcanic islands, the vine-killing phylloxera never arrived. Therefore, many of the vines have been growing and adapting for hundreds of years, enhancing the flavor of the wine, and reflecting the history of the land.

The “Canary Islands’ challenging terrain dictates a painstakingly wine-making process that begins with vines grown from large divots in the volcanic rock terrain. Harvesting is a slow, manual process that ensures gentle handling of the grapes and a truly artisan-made wine. “We were captivated by the wine growing process and astonished with the quality of wines,” attests Gold Medal Wine Club co-owner, David Chesterfield. “We knew our customers would be fascinated with their story and wines.”

Along with the three spectacular wines, the Gold Medal Wine Club also offers an exclusive “Adventure Package” assortment of Canary Islands gourmet food products—these too are available in the US for the first time.

“Our International wines are very special because we only purchase selections not available in the US. When they have sold out, we’re off to another country,” says daughter, Kelsey Chesterfield.

Gold Medal Wine Club specializes in introducing small, family owned wineries and wines direct-to-consumers all across the United States.
