Sample the most distinct wines of Lanzarote at three vineyards that use an unusual method of cultivation to produce award-winning wines out of the volcanic soil. While the Canary Islands aren't always associated with fine wine, the wineries here prove that they should be.
Your tour starts with a drive to the Bodega Rubicon Winery. These vineyards are part of a protected natural area characterized by a unique form of culture in the world. The fruit of these vineyards, along with the combination of traditional techniques and the latest technology, result in a wine of great quality and tradition. Here, you'll sample some vintages distinct to the soil and climate conditions only found on Lanzarote before continuing on.
Your second winery stop, El Grifo, is the oldest winery in the Canary Islands. Founded in 1775, its award-winning wines include a fruity red with violet tones and a lovely, amber-colored Muscat. All the labels bear a distinct griffin logo designed by the celebrated Lanzarote artist Cesar Manrique.
The third and final winery on the tour is La Geria, perhaps the island's most recognized vineyard as La Geria is also the name of Lanzarote's primary wine-growing region. Large quantities of at least six wines, ranging from dry, semi-sweet and sweet Malvasia, are produced under the La Geria label. Following your visit and tasting, you'll transfer directly back to the pier where your winery tour concludes.
