The wines in La Gomera have more than 400 years of history. Exactly since the Portuguese settlers first, and the Spanish later, brought their homeland vines to the islands. That is how the grape varieties that were present in continental Europe at the time arrived in the Canary Islands. The passing of time and the natural evolution did the rest, originating new grape varieties that are currently endemic to the Canary Islands.
Viticulture on the island has a history of approximately four centuries of existence, but it is only since 2003 that the "Vinos de La Gomera" Designation of Origin has brought together the island's grape and wine producers (200 winegrowers and 14 wineries).
In La Gomera the wine production of the areas of Hermigua and Vallehermoso stands out, where the most renowned wineries of the Denomination of Origin of the island are located. The white grape variety endemic to the island, the "Forastera", is present in many of the wines that are produced, sometimes exclusively but most of the time with other varieties to create nuances to the taste of the wine.
It is a viticulture of effort and sacrifice, since most of the vines are grown on terraces sculpted on steep slopes and steep slopes, so the production costs are high, which justifies its price.
The wines of La Gomera have the same personality as the wines of the Canary Islands. They are very pleasant to taste and very tasty when paired with the delicacies of these beautiful islands of the Atlantic.
