Wineries and cheese shops

Cheeses and wines with their own particular taste

Cheese and wine are two of the most characteristic products of the Canarian cuisine. To speak about Canarian wines is to make reference to the 10 wines with denominaciones de origen (official certificates of origin). The characteristics of the wine change radically from one area to another due to the different microclimates of the islands and the drastic changes of altitude in a matter of a few metres. Canarian cheeses are also characterised by their variety in texture and flavour although, if they do have something in common, it’s the fact that they are all made using traditional methods and have a flavour and subtlety that are unique. The best way to discover all these flavours is to visit some of the wineries and cheese shops of the Canary Islands. Besides just tasting, you can go and see the different stages of production.
