Bodega Hopping La Geria & El Grifo 2016

We spent yesterday bodega hopping on a residents trip with Lanzarote Active Club. Our mission was to discover the new wines for 2016 following the excellent harvest last summer.

We started at Bodega La Geria, where enologist Alejandro escorted us on a tour of the winery and updated us on their expanding range of Manto and Diego wines. The sad news is that this year is expected to be a terrible harvest, the months of January and February were too warm for the vines to hibernate, which caused confusion. When the vines started shooting for this year, they were 2 months late and the new growth was from the trunk and not from the tip. Together with the lack of sunshine recently, this means that the wineries are expecting a much lower yield and late harvest in 2016. Alejandro put this into perspective for us, last summer the winery produced 4 million litres of wine, this year they are expecting in the region of 1 million litres. The vines have fruited in a couple of stages this year, so are likely to need 2-3 harvests as the grapes ripen.

Lanzarote News In Brief - Week 27 2016

Yaiza Writes To Minister of Tourism About Illegal Hotels

February in Playa Blanca Lanzarote 2

Yaiza Ayuntamiento has written to the tourism minister of The Cabildo, copying The Canarian Government, with an update on the situation with hotels without proper planning permission in Playa Blanca. They state they have done so, as it is only the government which has the power to sanction or close down hotels that will not adapt to the planning rules. The Hotel Son Bou has submitted a plan to adapt, but the council says it is not possible to legalise it, as the hotel is triple the size agreed in the original plan. The Princesa Yaiza and Papagayo Arena Hotels still have to submit plans for partial demolition to comply.  read more »
