At small business such as local wineries, you have giants probabilities to meet the winemaker. For me meeting the producer is always the best experience of wine tourism.
Canary Islands population are well known for their charisma and welcoming manners. That is believe to have the origin of hundreds years of isolation from mainland Spain. People were expecting anyone to come to the islands to bring any news. That is probably why we are so curious and easy with foreigners too. Our amazing weather is another big reason for our open personality.Farmer in Tenerife island
So now transfer all that information to our local wineries. Winemakers who truly love our traditions and are more than happy to make your day the best of your holidays. So you won’t only meet the producer, you will have many possibilities to bottle or cork your wine too.
Our winemakers are very humble and delightful people. They are very proud of their labors and happy to share all like a friend. They know we all love wine and above all we want to enjoy the visit. Easy friendly talk, kind walks among the vineyards and loads of old stories about our wine traditions.
