Great Wines and Potato Festival in Los Realejos

Over in the north of the island, tomorrow, Saturday, 25th July, the City of Los Realejos, Turismo de Tenerife and the Regulatory Council of the Denomination of Origin Valle de La Orotava, are combining to promote both these sectors that stand out for their unique products.
In the Plaza de San Agustin, Los Realejos, from 19:00 hrs, there's the chance to taste wines from the Orotava Valley along with creative and delicious tapas of potatoes with mojo, offered by the Association of Potato Growers and traditional cultures Icod del Alto, for 1 or 2 Euros.

Along with the food and wine, there will also be a variety of music, from brass bands to pop.

For the sweet tooth, an hour earlier, at 18:00, there's a competition for the best confectionary. 

Gran Fiesta de Vinos y Papas en Los Realejos

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.
