Tim Atkin is a British Master of Wine, and an award-winning wine journalist, broadcaster and commentator. And in the prestigious Gourmet Traveller Wine website he’s just written an article about what he describes as Tenerife’s fascinating wines. Atkin was in Tenerife last year in collaboration with the Cabildo, and he not only describes the wines but talks about the historical vinicultural links between the UK and Tenerife that go back to Shakespearean times.

Atkin also runs through the singularity of the wines that are made in this island and their grape types, so many that he describes Tenerife as effectively almost the United Nations of wine!  The article is a great promotion for wines that are now seen and sold globally as exquisite and really quite special. You can read the article HERE.
