Wine Tasting at the Award Winning Bodegas CHP

A month ago I wrote a short blog on here about the Bodegas CHP Balcón Canario wine winning double gold at the San Francisco Wine Awards at the end of June. Oscar Hernández, fifth of six sons in the Bodegas CHP dynasty and passionate about the family’s wine trade, read the blog and invited us to come and visit the bodega. As few things ring our bell more loudly than being introduced to the best of the Canary Islands producers, we arranged to head along to La Reconda bodega in Candelaria to get to the roots of the family’s vinicultural success.

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.
