Valle de Güimar
Classification of wine origin in the south of Tenerife
Within the midlands and hilltops of the Güimar Valley, in the south of island, there are 1500 hectares devoted to growing vines, the Listan Blanco being the main variety that is grown in this area. The volcanic soil and trade winds define the character of the wine from this valley, one of the five classifications of wine origin in Tenerife. As well as producing dry white, semi-dry and cask wine, the wine makers in this area also produce rosé, red and sweet malvasia wine and more recently, sparkling wine.
