What to expect

Exclusively crafted for National Geographic, this tour offers a deep dive into Canarian wine and its historical significance as a cornerstone of European society from the 15th to the 18th century.

Begin by exploring Garachico, one of Tenerife's most impeccably preserved historic towns. As you wander its cobbled streets, your National Geographic-trained guide will unveil the tale of its port—a vital hub for exporting wine to Europe and America, tragically altered by a volcanic eruption.

Next, venture to Viñátigo Winery, a family-run estate celebrated for rescuing Tenerife's native grape varieties from near extinction. Meet the passionate owner and local winemaker amidst sprawling vineyards, where you'll learn about diverse grape species and their eco-friendly and organic agricultural methods. Experience their meticulous wine-making process before sampling a selection of their finest wines, guided by an on-site expert.

Continue your wine odyssey at Bodegas El Sitio in Tacoronte, a pioneering, eco-conscious winery known as the Canaries' first energy-self-sufficient bodega. Discover their sustainable grape-growing practices from a knowledgeable guide, highlighting the natural methods that produce their distinctive and flavorful wines.

Wrap up your day with a delightful spread of authentic Canarian tapas amidst the stunning vineyard scenery, immersing yourself in the eye-catching vistas of the surrounding landscape and the Atlantic Ocean serving as your backdrop.
