The great news is that the 2018 harvest of 3.9 million kilos is the largest since the setup of the regulatory council in 1993. The longer, steadier ripening cycle has also meant that the wine makers are incredibly happy with their wines which are already being released to the market. The 2017 vintage of the Island was officially certified as “excellent” and we expect 2018 to be another close call.
Lanzarote is particularly famous for its young, crisp and fruity wine from the Malvasia Volcanica grape. This is a wine that is best drunk young and you can already try the 2018 releases on our tours.
We hope to see you soon!
