Grape growers in the Canary islands expect to harvest 550,000 kilos of grapes, enough for up to 330,000 bottles of wine. This is up 15% on last year due to excellent weather conditions and maturing viveyards. Many new grapevines have been planted in the last 15 years and they are now maturing and yielding more grapes.
Most Canary Islands wines stay on the islands although a small but growing number of bottles are exported to Europe and America.
Expect th first bottles of 2015 harvest white wines to appear early in 2016.
