The vine is the only plant that has taken permanent root in the soil of Tacoronte since the conquest and, although it has passed through some difficult times, fortunately it is now back to full strength. Agriculture has now modernised, both regarding the means of production and in the manner of creating its wines, thereby bringing back to Tacoronte the fame of former times.
When the trade with England was lost after about a century, the owners of the Tacoronte vineyards did not abandon the cultivation of the vine. Rather the vine acquired new fame for years among consumers and it was at a the end of the 19th Century and in the early 20th Century, that the wine-growers of the area saw their economy on the rise.
In the 1950s, an association of wine-growers was formed in Tacoronte.
And in the early 1990s, the Tacoronte-Acentejo Designation of Origin, was created, which is the oldest in the Canary Islands and perhaps the one with the greatest viticultural and technological development.
