Gran Canaria Vineyards

Ok, niche query I know, but I’m sure there’s some good knowledge here.

I’m off to Gran Canaria with a large group of friends (c.20) to celebrate a fortieth. I’d love to take the group to a vineyard on our final day. I wonder if anyone here had any thoughts/suggestions? I know Gran Canaria is not particularly renowned as a wine region so I’m keen, if possible, to find a place that produces something decent enough rather than just being a tourist trap. Or am I being too optimistic?

Not at all, there’s a vibrant wine scene on Gran Canaria - only slightly less interesting than Teneriffe or La Palma.

My picks would be

Bodega Los Berrazales https://bodegalosberrazales.com in Agaete. Tours, tastings and also have the distinction of having the only coffee plantation “in Europe”

Bodega Fronton de Oro Bodega Frontón de Oro :: Vinos near Portillo - well worth a visit, super-welcoming family winery with scenic views

Bodega Las Tirajanas https://www.bodegaslastirajanas.com in the south of the Island. Principally a cellar door with tasting flights available

The Island’s Vistors’ wine centre is in Santa Brigida and there’s a nearby restaurant with an extensive wine list of the Island’s wines. There is a wine route http://rutadelvinodegrancanaria.org

Pictures of a couple of the visits and a selection of souvenir bottles we took home

post script - of my nominations, Berrazales would be best able to accommodate a group of 20

Thanks so much!

We’re staying in the south so I’m tempted to try Las Tirajanas first :slight_smile:
