/ DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITY /
The House of Wine of Tenerife is a worthy representative of a historic rustic farmhouse. It is located in the Medianías (mid slopes) of the North of Tenerife and has been preserved in time, after being built by its owners as a first or second summer residence for the purpose of centralising their farming activities, which covered the land from the sea to the summit, with all kinds of representative products of each area – coast, mid slopes and upper area. The style of the House responds to the features of the Canarian building of the time, thus gathering the constructive and detailed aspects of master craftsmen of Portuguese, Castilian and Extremadura origin. The ceiling of the Chapel stands out for its beauty and colours which remain unrestored.
