Malvasía Week is a festival that started back in 2015 and revolves around the wines of the island. Malvasía is the grape variety most commonly used to make wine on the island, and is responsible for Lanzarote’s very best wines. Each year, we have a festival to celebrate the grape and the wines that it produces, which includes all kinds of activities involving music, food and wine.
This year it resumes with a varied range of activities, all paying tribute to the people involved in the wine world in our island. Food, art, story-telling, hiking, music and, of course, wine will be featured. The festival will take place from the 3rd to the 7th of November in different venues around Lanzarote.
– Wednesday, November 3rd: Food and wine experience: Mexican delicacies.
– Thursday, November 4th: Eno-artistic workshop with Rufina Santana.
– Friday, November 5th: Storytelling “Érase una vid” with Vicki Dos Santos. The title meaning “Once upon a vine”, a play of words between “vid”, vine and “vez”, time. Clever, right?
– Saturday, November 6th: Trail through La Geria with Senderismo Lanzarote.
– Also on Saturday, November 6th: “Sonidos Líquidos”, or Liquid Sounds – mixing food and wine samples and music- at La Recova in Arrecife with Ginebras , a four-piece all-female band from Madrid.
– Sunday November 7th: More Liquid Sounds at La Casa Ajei in San Bartolomé with music by singer and composer Amparo Sánchez , raised in Granada and former leader of the 90s fusion band “Amparanoia”.
In the coming days the organiser Consejo Regulador de Vinos de Lanzarote, the Wine Regulatory Council of the island, will announce how to register for the activities and purchase the tickets.
