Bodegas

A selection of the wonderful vineyards you can visit 

Introducing Bodega Vulcano de Lanzarote. Volcanic by name and, indeed, by nature. One of the youngest wineries on the island, this Tías bodega dates back to 2009.

Bodegas El Grifo's very much the old hand. Founded in 1775, this family winery was the first to be established on the Canary Islands and one of the ten most ancient in the whole of Spain.

Bodega La Geria's one of the most visited wineries in Spain. The pictured stone walls, los zocos, protect the vines from the area's prevailing wind.

Very much a family bodega, the Pacheco Quintero brothers run the winery their parents established back in 1948, you need to contact them in advance to visit the Bodega

Bodegas Rubicon offer visitors a free, open-house entry to their Yaiza winery. So, you'll be able to visit the barrel, exhibition, and tasting rooms, along with the old family home.

Another of the newer wineries on Lanzarote, Bodegas Vega de Yuco dates back to 1997. Situated on the grounds of a family finca in Masdache, its hillside location also houses a botanic garden. Here grows 60 varieties of flora endemic to the island.

Housed in a typical Canarian 18th-century property belonging to one of Lanzarote's most important families houses Bodega Los Bermejos is our favourite with stunning views from their peaceful terrace
