/ DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITY /

 

Bodegas El Grifo (winery), dates back to 1775, being the oldest in the Canary Islands and among the oldest in Spain. Our wines belong to the designation of origin D.O. Lanzarote.

The Museo del Vino (Wine Museum) is the oldest winery in the Canary Islands and one of the oldest ten in Spain. It has belonged to two families; today’s family has owned it for 5 generations. It is located in the protected area of La Geria which was covered by volcanic ash after the eruptions that took place between 1730 and 1736.

Inside you can see wine presses, pumps, crushers, stills, etc. dating from the nineteenth century and early twentieth century.

It is one of the most visited wine museums in Spain – 60,000 visitors annually and it is accessed through the Pájaro Grifo monument, by César Manrique.
