I'll be on vacation in Tenerife (Canary Islands, technically part of Spain) and have read that there's an impressive 70 wineries on this small island. I've also read that it is difficult to find the wines outside of the island. Has anyone tried wines from here before or have any recommendations for wineries to visit? Thanks in advance!
In case you've not yet read it, Kelli White wrote a great piece about the Canaries last year and mentions a number of wineries. I've seen the Frontón de Oro and Envínate wines in multiple markets and would recommend both!
I visited the island earlier this year and it’s an amazing place.
Visited Suertes del Marquis which is probably one of the best visits I ever did (I’ve done many!). Apart of them is Envínate the other star. Producing wines in several Spanish region including Tenerife.
Have a great trip
Wow, this is incredible and exactly the kind of information I was looking for. Thank you!
Tajinaste and Vinatigo were both pretty cool and solid wines. Bodegas Monje is a unique winery that was a fun visit and has a nice deck area with a beautiful view. All are relatively close. I would make a point of going to Mt Teide while your there...worth the drive!
I tired Artefice wines and they are very nice some local varieties and some are synonyms for Spanish varieties. Nice wine
Some of my favorites from the Canaries -
Suertes del Marques
Matias i Torres
New producer coming to the states is Pablo Matallana - I haven't had the wines but I have been begging for them forever.
Reach out to the importers - they will be the best route to get in touch with the wineries.
Jose Pastor Selections and European Cellars are the ones from the wineries listed above.
