A taste of Tenerife's wine – if it was good enough for Shakespeare...

Canary Malmsey wine was once considered to be the best wine in the world and Shakespeare received a barrel as part of his annual stipend.

Way off the tourist trail, the beautiful 17th-century La Baranda wine museum chronicles the history of Tenerife's viniculture and has over 300 types and labels of local wines, including Malmsey.

There's a tasting room so you can try before you buy, and an excellent restaurant on site.

Value for money

Expert tips

Don't miss the adjoining honey museum and buy some authentic Tenerife honey to take home, it's delicious and cheaper here than in many other outlets.
