The Islands

DO Valle de Güímar

Lying on the south-eastern coast of Tenerife, these vineyards were granted denomination of origin status in 1996.

Like the Abona vineyards, they stretch up the slopes of Mount Teide to reach some of the highest vine-growing altitudes in Europe. However, in the search for balance and quality of the final product, the most favourable conditions, both in soil and climate, are to be found in the plantations located above 800 metres altitude. At these heights, the vines are grown on low arbours in soil of volcanic origin with high permeability.

The denomination takes its name from Güímar, one of the three towns (Güímar, Arafo and Candelaria) lying within the DO.
