El Palmar Cheese & Wine Center


New Development
Originally uploaded by Secret Tenerife.
When I first posted the photo of this new development next to the Teno Rural Park management offices at the Finca Los Pedregales in the El Palmar valley, I had not then discovered what the buildings would be used for. Now, thanks to a lengthy interview with Buenavista's mayor, Aurelio Abreu, that was televised on TV Channel 8 a couple of nights ago, I can tell you.

The intention is that it become the hub for all the agricultural activities in the area, with the next door farmers market being the place that locals can sell their produce, these installations will house the bodega for the production and distribution of the region's wine and a plant for the commercial production of the local cheese.

The complex will also serve as a visitor center for people visiting the Teno Rural Park, particularly to the areas within the El Palmar valley and Teno Alto.
Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
