Wine Tasting in Tenerife

Tenerife in your glass

He came as a witness of the land

Gastronomic tourism is currently one of the preferred ways for travelers from all over the world to get closer to the reality of the land they are visiting. Wine is one of the most attractive manifestations of the way of being of the people who grow, work and drink it. That’s why wine tastings in Tenerife will open a door to the heart of the people of Tenerife.

You will get to know Tenerife through its wines.

Tenerife has no less than five different designations of origin: Valle de La Orotava, Tacoronte-Acentejo, Valle de Güímar, Ycoden-Daute-Isora and Abona. Although each area has its own personality and specific peculiarities, they all have many points in common. Nevertheless, Tenerife’s wine routes take us through harmonious and diverse landscapes.

Soil and climate are key players in any winegrowing operation. In the case of Tenerife, the volcanic soils, the regular rainfall regime, the balanced temperatures and the predominance of the trade winds are largely responsible for the personality of its wines. Altitude is another fundamental variable in Tenerife wines.

In addition, the varieties of berries present in the Canary Islands in general and in Tenerife in particular are a very important factor in understanding the peculiarities of the wines of this land. Unique varieties have survived here (the not inconsiderable figure of 21 for the whole archipelago), which were not affected by the phylloxera epidemic that invaded Europe in the 19th century; a heritage worthy of attention for wine lovers and that will not leave wine lovers indifferent during their wine tastings in Tenerife.

It will be a revelation.
