Description of this tour

We take you to visit 3 wineries, whose historical-artistic heritage has more than three centuries of history and is backed by hundreds of awards. The wineries we visit have the quality assurance Designation of Origin Lanzarote and are awarded annually in the most prestigious international wine competitions: Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, Decanter Awards, Berliner Wein Trophy, Vinalies Internationales, Concours International de Lyon and AWC Vienna.

This tour is a cultural journey through the production of wine from La Geria, a unique inherited science, which will teach us the particularity of these vineyards. You will taste a selection of wines from three of the best historic wineries in Lanzarote (Bodegas Rubicón, El Grifo and Los Bermejos) within the La Geria wine region, a protected landscape unlike any other in the world.

This excursion is educational with a deep focus on geology and culture, linked to the production of wine in Lanzarote. You will also learn about the generations of people who have worked to develop the vineyards of Lanzarote.

We will start our trip in the Valley of la Geria located in the heart of the island. An overwhelming landscape of lava and mantles of volcanic characteristics of Lanzarote.

In this wine tour we will tell you the history of the island and how the locals have managed to turn the aridity of the Lanzarote landscape into an advantage for the cultivation of the vine, using a unique method that has made La Geria a Protected Natural Area.

You will also taste the finishes of this practice. La Geria, the heart of Lanzarote. In this lunar landscape, where the Timanfaya volcano spewed ash and rocks for the last time in the 18th century, a grape is grown in a way unique to this world: to protect fruits from wind and sun, the vine is planted in holes of “picón” (volcanic ash) surrounded by walls of volcanic stones, called “enarenados” (like sand pit).

The grapes are collected during the months of July and August, to make a wine, mainly white, with golden reflections and floral effluvium known as Malvasía. We have prepared two spaces for tasting that will vary depending on the weather: embraced by the vineyards or between barrels inside the cellar.
