Tacoronte-Acentejo DO

In 1992 this north-eastern tip of Tenerife island, called the Anaga peninsula, became the Canaries' first wine DO.

Ever since it has pioneered quality wines, which are now being exported. The islands' largest DO, it boasts spectacular landscape with deep, narrow valleys running down from high peaks and intensively cultivated, terraced valley sides. Winemaking in the area had been considerably updated in the last twenty years.
