Abona DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

Abona is the newest of Tenerife's four DO zones which, effectively, cover the island. Established in 1996, its young white, red and rosé wines were quickly supported by the ready-made market supplied by year-round tourism.

The vineyard area is growing rapidly in size, although it will not come into full production for some years.
 
Vineyards are divided between seven municipalities and a broad range of altitudes that include some of Europe's highest vineyards, located at 1,500 metres (4,920 feet).

Old grape varieties and varied growing conditions, many of them close to organic in this semi-desert like climate, promise interesting wines in the future.
