La Orotava, Canary Islands, Spain
Duration:
8 H
 (2)
Visit La Orotava Valley and Tacoronte, taste the famous red wines of the largest wine-growing area. Today the Canary Islands, and especially Tenerife, are producing excellent wines. ... moreThe non-grafted plants, volcanic soil and microclimates help to create these exclusive wines, from fresh fruity whites to full spicy reds. Hand laboured vineyards and artisan wineries are scattered all over the rugged geography of Tenerife, from the coast to the mountain slopes where the highest vineyards of Europe can be found.

Visit the Orotava Valley region to admire the unique “plaited” planting method and try their spectacular white wines. Then you will taste the red wines of the Tacoronte wine region, the largest wine-growing area with almost 2,500 hectares of vineyards, scattered with small artisan wineries and the famous “Guachinches” (the wine-makers’ patio or garage, where you can drink their wine accompanied by traditional homemade Canary dishes).
