Fataga – Gran Canaria


Fataga is a town in the wine growing region on Gran Canaria. When we visited we tried to find a tasting room open at one of the Bodega’s but they were all closed. We also did not see any vineyards, just a few dried up vines near where the Bodega signs led us.

Driving on Gran Canaria can be a shock at first. Narrow roads that only accommodate one car are actually two lane roads that wrap around hair pin blind curves. Luckily everyone drives slow, honks around corners and it can actually be pretty exciting, once you get used to it.

We came up here looking for wine but we were not successful. We also came to try a popular restaurant and their signature dish the Carne de Cabra or goat stew. The restaurant, Restaurante El Albaricoque Fataga has quite the amazing view.

We ordered the Carne de Cabra and also bread with cheese. It was a delicious lunch in an incredible setting. Highly recommended.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
