Walking and Wine in Vilaflor

Lying 1300 metres above sea level, the vines of the Bodega Reverón are amongst the highest in Spain. A thriving family vineyard since 1947, Listán Blanco grapes dominate the annual harvest, perfectly suited as they are to the altitude and climate and to the growing conditions where the family employ organic farming methods. Following a tour of the bodega, we gathered in the small shop and tasting room to sample this year’s stable of wines. Working our way through a repertoire of predominantly white wines along with a rosé and a couple of reds, we all agreed that our favourite was a mellow Los Quemados moscatel.

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.
