For many centuries after the conquest of the Canary Islands, Malvasia wine, produced from a Greek grape of the same name, was the main industry in Tenerife. The famous Canary Sack became one of the most-prized wines in the world and was in constant demand in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, some wineries keep this tradition alive by producing traditional sweet malvasias, as well as dry ones.

This wine has a bright gold colour and intense aroma. The sweet varieties are perfect to accompany desserts or as an aperitif to accompany a good Canarian cheese.
