Without intending to, Rafael Espino, owner and current manager of Bodegas Vega de Yuco, backed by his professional experience in the sector and his academic training (as an Agricultural Engineer and specialist in Agricultural Economics), began to make the wine that years later would become one of the most recognized wines of the Canary Islands and of the DO Lanzarote.
On that April 23, 1997, the winery was established with provisional headquarters in a small warehouse in La Vegueta, in the "Maretón de Yuco" area. Tinajo area that gave the name to the winery.
