Excellent wines are produced now in the Canary Islands, but few restaurants serve them, they seem to stick to the staple tourist favorites Viña Sol for white or Faustino V for red. The local wines have won praise and awards, even in France, so the restaurants do little to support their local culture or produce. All about the money ain’t it!! Los Abrigos used to be somewhere you could get away from the main tourist hoards and sample a little Canarian life, but these days it caters to middleclasse/nouveau riche tourists, and the late night bars to the local addicts.
