What people are saying about El Sauzal

A really big surprise. A friendly welcome in the future. We had an assortment of adapted cheeses with 4 different wines. This from soft to harder with both cheese and wine. A wow feeling. We are not red wine drinkers at all, but our Belgian (room temperature) red wines are not at all comparable to those from here in the region, they are even served cold. After tasting a nice explanation about the grapes (even got to taste). And then you get the tour inside the room where everything is processed. And at the very bottom the biggest surprise, very specle space ;). During the tour you will also get to know 1 wine that is processed completely the same but then matures on land and the other under water. Same bottle, but what a difference due to pressure, sunlight and temperature. Delicious, definitely recommend to try them.

A winery immersed in the vineyards of Tenerife. The wines are good and the guided tour through the cellar is very interesting. Too bad that the restaurant was closed for holidays (all the month of August) otherwise we would have tried it. The cellar staff recommended an excellent typical Tenerife restaurant (Guachiche) where we had dinner after the tasting.

Very nice experience and nice wine with local snacks. Service spoke good English and explained the wine. Furthermore, a museum about the wine history of Tenerife that you could walk in.

The treatment was great, very good service, great wines, especially the white ones, we liked them a lot

Great tasting of local specialties and wines. Very well received, I recommend!
