The Wine Region

The Wineries

The Wine Region

Monte Lentiscal is the first wine region of Gran Canaria and also the island’s first wine Denomination of Origin from the island. The main natural attractions are the Bandama volcano and its volcanic crater of 1,000 m wide and 200 m deep, called caldera by locals.

The vines grow on the slopes of the volcano, a soil covered by volcanic ash, giving unique varieties of grapes. These vines have adapted to the strong temperature variation between day and night, benefiting from the volcanic soil that helps to maintain humidity and grow these grapes with natural and highly mineralized characteristics.

The Wineries

This region has many hundred-year-old and more wineries. Visiting these wineries is traveling in time through their patios and hundred-year-old wine presses. They are the surviving witnesses of an ancient and extraordinary tradition that backs up their history.

Here you will find limited edition wines, made of unique local varieties, vineyards wholly manual and nocturnal harvested that design sublime landscapes, a good example of the heroic work of our producers.

The vineyards

The geography in the Canaries is so abrupt that viticulture has always been an adventure. Our enological visits include a guided walk through the vineyards with the winemaker. Experience is this: share the process and close relations between winemakers and where the wines are born.

The winemakers & the wine tastings

After 5 years of guiding gastronomy visits, advising our producers, and designing the best tastings experiences, we offer our wines with a quality local appetizer carefully selected to pair each wine. Our wines are as unique as the love we put into our tastings.

But the real treasure comes by your hostess, our winemakers. Our marvelous winemakers will guide us trough its wines & production. The most unique experience.

Surprise your palate

Did you know that…?

…the Canary Islands have been producing wine for the past 500 years? Wines were the primary income in the XVI Century. The prestige of the Canary wines was imposed in such a way that, in most of the leading European courts, the malvasía was always present, a wine “which pleases the senses and perfumes the blood”. Back then, it was distinguished as a Denomination of Origin being given the generic name of “Canary.”

Furthermore, numerous are the quotes about Canary wine that famous writers of all time make in their works: Shakespeare, Walter Scout, Góngora, José Spillman, among others…
