The Best Gran Canaria Wines (2016)

Agala's Altitud 1175 red and the Señorío de Agüimes dry white won the best Gran Canaria wine gongs at the XI Cata Insular wine tasting event.

The annual event is organised by the island's Cabildo and is a blind tasting of over 50 Gran Canaria wines.

In the red wine category, Agala's Altitud 1175 won the gold medal and another wine by the same bodega, the Agala 1050, won the silver. Bronze went to Rincón de Guiniguada from Santa Brígida.

Amongst the white wines, the Señorío de Agüimes won gold, followed by the Mondalón. Agala's 1318 got the bronze. 

In the semi and sweet category, Valara Dulce won gold, Berrazales Semiseco from Agaete the silver, and Dulcelechuza from San Mateo the bronze.

We'll be tracking down the Señorio de Agüimes white for a review ASAP because they only make a couple of thousand bottles each year. 

Alex says: It's no surprise that the top two Gran Canaria reds aren't made with listán negro grapes. Find out why in the Tried & Tasted: Guide To Canary Islands Wine
