  • About

Valle de Güimar, denominated wine region of just under 1,000 ha/2,470 acres at up to 1,400 m/4,593 ft occupying a valley in the dry south-eastern part of Tenerife in the Spanish canary islands. A few tiny wineries, technically improved with eu subsidies, make surprisingly distinguished wines from the white listán Blanco grape, but in such small quantities that they are hardly known even on the island.
