Güímar wines are among my favourite Canarian wines, and on Friday, 31 August, there’s a chance to try quite a few of them at the Fiesta de los Vinos in Puertito de Güímar. The event starts at 7pm and is organized by the Ayuntamiento to bring local products to a wider audience. It is supported by the Cabildo, and several Güímar bodegas will be taking part, along with some from Cumbres de Abona, another area with some spectacular wines. There will be lots of local foods and tapas on offer too, and it’s a good opportunity, perhaps, also to get to know this lovely little seaside resort. The council is offering free buses from any bus stops in the municipality that serve El Puertito. For logistical reasons the council asks that anyone wanting to attend should register by phone to 9188.8.131.52 between 8am and 2pm, Monday to Friday, just to leave your name.
