Tasting Bermejo Wine At Casa Diama

We visited Casa Diama, which is in the wine growing region of La Geria, in order to understand more about wine growing and to taste Bodega Bermejo’s excellent wines. We went with a group from Lanzarote Active Club.

Casa Diama

Casa Diama  Bodega

The house is set well back from the main road in La Geria, and is access by a 2KM dirt track, nestled well inside the volcanic region. The Timanfaya mountains can be clearly seen, and the borders of the finca are actually the lava flow from there. The black picon is extremely deep in this area, which is why the Hoyos (the circular holes dug to get the vines down to the soil) are so deep.

The house itself consists of a two bedroom property and a small apartment, which can be rented weekly and provides an extremely tranquil place for a get away break.

We were shown around the finca by the owner’s son Carlos. There are two grape varieties grown on the finca, the Malvasía, which is the bedrock of Lanzarote’s white wines, and the Moscatel, which provides the grape for the stunning sweet wines made here. The Mavasía grapes are being harvested now (July) and the others will be left on the vines until September,  read more »

Because the island is so busy at the moment, easyJet were only able to find enough space in hotels overnight for elderly passengers and those with young children.

Failing to secure more rooms, the airport authorities called the Department of Social Services at The Cabildo for help, with the remaining passengers facing the prospect of having to camp overnight at the airport without food and drink.  read more »
