Oldest bodega in Canaries and authentic museum.

I am always delighted by this little bodega and museum in the middle of Lanzarote's wine region, La Geria. Not only is this place the oldest bodega in the Canaries, but one the oldest in the whole of Spain. The 18th-century building houses a variety of wine making items, from giant presses to bottling equipment which may not be of real interest to anyone but a true wine buff, but are an important part of the authentic, atmospheric backdrop. Come here to drink in a little of the history of wine making, and then retire to the small bar for some tasting of some very fine local wines.
