Gran Canaria and Canary Islands wines may cost a couple of euros a bottle more than imported plonk but are well worthwhile. You also get to feel good by supporting local agriculture from your balcony.

All the reviews posted here are for the bst Canarian wines that we've tried. Every wine we try is reviewed in our Canary Islands Wine Facebook group.

 

This classy Gran Canaria red, made from grapes grown in the hills just behind Maspalomas, is one of the best Canarian wines we've tasted.
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.
This superb dry Tenerife Malvasia was the wine we chose to toast the release of Tried & Tasted: The Guide to Canary Islands Wine. 
The wines of the Canary Islands, born of lava and sunshine and pressed from rare and ancient grapes, are a the highlights of the islands that most visitors miss out on. We want to change that, so here's the book that helps you understand and enjoy them.
This superb Tenerife white is a classic Canarian wine that everybody should try.
A Tenerife dry white that balances out volcanic minerals and tropical fruit flavours.
An original Tenerife white wine that benefits from time in Acacia wood barrels.
A lovely Gran Canaria tinto that makes you feel good about the future of Canarian red wine.
The history of Canarian wine goes all the way back to the Ancient Greeks, and vines from the Canary Islands were the first to be planted in the Americas and Lord Nelson learned to drink with his other hand using wine from Tenerife.
Gran Canaria wineries make excellent wines, but they are often hard to find if you stay in the resorts. 
The budget dry white from one of La Palma's top wineries, this is a fruity and drinkable wine perfect for a hot day.
This wine is like a 1980s Russian shotputter; Not because of its dubious origins, enormous legs or chemical content, but because it's won loads of international medals. 
An excellent dry white from the Monte area of Gran Canaria that is packed with tropical flavour.
A spectacular young red from Tacoronte Acentejo in Tenerife that is one of the best value Canarian wines on the market.
The Agala 1175 tinto altitud is from the bodega that makes the the spectacular 1318 white so you know it's going to be worth the 10 euro price.
A lovely, smooth Tenerife red made from negramoll, the last appreciated of all Canarian grape varieties.
The only La Gomera wine available in Gran Canaria and an opportunity to try a grape with a mysterious past and great potential.
We've said it before and here it is again: La Palma white wines are the best value in the Canary Islands. Here's another example of the superb quality you get from La Isla Bonita.
