“TARONGINO, YOUR ORANGE APERITIF”
Clementine Tarongino, a “Clementine Wine”?
Clementine Tarongino, is the marriage of Taronja (“Orange” in the Valencian language) + wine + Clementine. The Clementine Mandarin of Valencia is renowned internationally for its quality and intense flavour. The Clementine is the result of the perfect melding of the mandarin orange and the bitter orange that occurred in the nineteenth century. This enables us today to enjoy the modern Clementine. Applying the vast and ancient culture of wine to the Clementine, we get an incredibly delicate and exquisite product.
Due to its unique preparation and the careful selection of the best fruit, selected and handpicked one by one at their optimum ripeness, Clementine Tarongino perfectly with all tastes.
Who we are
Naranjas Ché is the family business of the Antelo Mencheta family, with over five generations of experience in the cultivation of oranges and clementines from Valencia, the world’s best known region for the quality of its citrus fruits. Our orchards are located in Sagunto (Valencia), in the region of Camp de Morvedre, a renowned citrus area.
In 2004, our parents passed the running of the business on to us, the younger generation, Guillermo, Gonzalo and Javier Antelo, We wanted to go a step further, opting for the maximum respect for the health of our customers and care for the environment, but with the constant challenge to strive for and improve the quality of our fruit. To do this, we incorporated organic practices and have achieved organic certification. Since then, we have done what we do best, taking care of our oranges and clementines in order to obtain a fruit that is honest, natural and with the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals provided by our Mediterranean essence – sunshine, mild temperatures and ocean breeze.
Our spirit of improvement and our desire to innovate and add value to our oranges has led us to investigate and invest our efforts (and savings) in Tarongino, an artisanal beverage made 100% from organic Valencia oranges and inspired by the Essence of the Mediterranean which makes dreams come true. We are making available the qualities and true nature of the Mediterranean Culture.
