We’ve had the pleasure of attending several bodega hopping excursions with Eco Insider over the years. It’s a great way for us to taste the new Lanzarote wines, especially as we don’t have to drive!

The choice of wineries can change, the Lanzarote bodegas included in this full day excursion during 2018 include La Geria, El Grifo and Vulcano.

Wine tasting at Bodega La Geria, this winery is in the heart of the unique wine region of Lanzarote

Your experienced wine guide will tour the wineries with a small group, to explain what is so unique about our wine industry here, and the fascinating history behind it. You will also learn wine tasting techniques, so you can impress your sommelier at restaurants in the future.

Wine tasting at Bodega El Grifo & Museum which is one of the oldest wineries of the Canary Islands, and one of the ten oldest in Spain

With all that wine to taste, a hearty lunch is required and you won’t be disappointed. A traditional  and seasonal Canarian lunch is included marinated and pickled tuna, grilled octopus, Canarian potatoes with mojo sauces, chick pea stew with chorizo, braised rabbit and grilled ribs, are some of the ingredients on the menu, which may vary due to season. Plus wine, water and coffee to drink.

Wine tasting at Bodega Vulcano, the only urban winery in Lanzarote

Eco Insider pride themselves on offering the best selection of premium wines available in Lanzarote. They include those wines that the bodega’s oenologist are most proud of, including the sparkling and dessert wines.

By the end of this excursion you will have a complete appreciation for the local wine craftmanship, an understanding why La Geria wine region is like a moonscape, and been wined and dined in true Canarian style.

This is a full day tour, the pick up time is approximately 09:30 and estimated drop off at 17:00.

The cost is €75 per person which includes your transport, a wine specialist, 9 tastings of premium wine, tapas and a full traditional lunch.
