We just leg it to the supermarket. Depends on what you want to pay. Plenty of choice there.

San Valantine is a medium sweet, I prefer it to Vina Sol, but only just !

For decent Tenerife wines one of the Flor de Chasnas at around €5 in the supermarkets, perhaps Testamento at around €8 for cheap and cheerful then Torres San Valentin which in restaurants expect to pay about €2 a glass

Torres wines are OK and are from the Cataluña region of Spain. You normaly can't go wrong with a Rioja or Ribera del Duero, but again, from the mainland, not local.
