Although it seems strange among those dark lands with white margins and separators, in the midst of that harmony - a mixture of architecture and nature - the vineyards grow.
The soil conditions of the island as well as the characteristic climate are the two main (and most important) ingredients for the agriculture of the land and, of course, for harvesting a unique and different wine.
Throughout the island of Lanzarote we find production of all kinds of wine, both white, red and rosé. But if there is a characteristic variety of the island, that is the Volcanic Malvasia. It is a type of grape that offers us a high-end white wine -sweet or dry-, very aromatic and balanced on the palate.
Both the islanders and those who are visiting the island have the great opportunity to enjoy the oenology of the island and the wine sector in different wineries that are located throughout the protected landscape of La Geria.
The island's wines have their own Denomination of Origin, a seal that grants them quality standards as well as intrinsic characteristics of the land and conditions in which the vineyards have grown.
It is the oldest winery in all the Canary Islands. Its origins go back to the year 1775 and it is this long history and experience that allows us to find in its facilities more than 500 objects and tools linked to the world of wine and that show us the advances of the sector over the years.
It is a must visit as well as taking a few bottles of malvasía, muscatel or listán negra. Its wines par excellence.
Since the end of the 19th century and until now, the La Geria winery has been growing and gaining ground until it has become one of the wine references on the island.
If you take one of their guided tours you will be able to discover how the vine is cultivated -based on holes- and what flavor their wines have.
Its origins date back to the 17th century and it is said to be one of the most characteristic and emblematic wineries on the island.
Its terrace has impressive views of the Timanfaya volcano from where you can taste its wines and also savor its local cuisine.
