  • About

Abona, small denominated Spanish wine region covering the semi-desert south of Tenerife in the vinously revitalized canary islands. Inland, at Vilaflor, it boasts Europe’s highest vineyard, reaching 1,600 m/5,200 ft above sea level. It produces an increasing number of organic wines as well as whites of little distinction from the listán Blanco grape.
