The Summit five senses

In the middle of Gran Canaria, La Cumbre arises with the highest peaks of the island in the municipality of Tejeda, a set of volcanic mountains sharply eroded. This landscape is surrounded by depths and ravines cutting out the hillsides where the mountains trails design winding roads that swirl the dispersed small villages.

Cheesemaking tradition

Artisanal cheesemaking

Cheesemaking tradition

The Canary Islands is the Spanish region with the highest cheese consumption per inhabitant per year and also where some of the best European cheeses are produced. Furthermore, it is probably the place with the highest number of small cheese factories per square meter. The island of Gran Canaria alone has 80 artisan cheese factories. All these characteristic offers the traveler a great variety of cheeses made from different types of milk and recipes.

The geography of Gran Canaria creates different microclimates and biodiversity that determines the intensity of the flavors and textures of our cheeses.

Artisanal cheesemaking

Imagine milking a herd of nearly 500 heads every day by hand. A job choice naturally accepted for the love of our traditions, not imposed by the rural society. Such is the case of this family of cattle breeders that chooses to take the cattle to the other side of the island, looking for better pasture in the rainy season.

The physical demand of this journey through the steep sidehills of our volcanic land makes this cattle produce milk of improved quality, and it positions their products among the best cheeses in Gran Canaria.

The naturalness of the process, the love of manual labor, and the respect for our traditions is the result of the vast rural gastronomic heritage of an island that will take you far beyond our golden shores.

Winery above the clouds

Who knows a little of our climate and orography can tell about the walk on the clouds that the peaks of Gran Canaria create for us, where the tops of our volcanic mountains caress the clouds and our exquisite wines are produced.

These vineyards are located at about 1130 meters (the highest winery in Europe), on the southern slopes of the island, far away from industrial centers and urban pollution. The well defined seasons, with cold winters (-0º C) and hot summers, and the quality of the soils benefits the excellent ripening of the grapes.

Winery facilities are excavated in natural stone, a better environment for more appropriate production and preservation of wines. This cave cellar provides views worthy of gods that we share with those who love to have a walk on the clouds with a glass of good wine…

5-Senses experience

Five years of experience support our dedication to the local producers. We visit them and give them advice on different topics to design the best tastings. We always offer the wines of our producers with an appetizer, 100% local products of the same quality, warmly designed to pair each wine.

Our wines and cheeses are unique, as it is the love we put into our tastings.
