Nat Geo Day Tour: History of Wine in the Canary Islands

Designed exclusively for National Geographic, this tour gives an insight into Canarian wine and its history, and why it was an essential beverage for the European society from the 15th to the 18th century.

Discover Garachico, one of the best preserved and most historic towns in Tenerife. As you stroll its cobbled streets, your National Geographic-trained guide will reveal the story of its port – a bustling harbinger of wine to the rest of Europe and America, which was later devastated by a volcanic eruption.

Next, you'll visit the family-run, Viñátigo Winery, that has helped save many of Tenerife's native grapes from the brink of extinction. Meet the wine expert who'll show you the sprawling vineyards and teach about the different grape varieties. They will also explain how their wine is produced without chemicals. After learning the elaboration process, sample various wines with a specialist on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Conclude your day by indulging in authentic Canarian tapas amidst the picturesque vineyard backdrop, while soaking in the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
