Masdache is famous all over the island for its wine museum, run by Bodegas El Grifo. We would recommend you visit and try one of the island’s delicious wines.
- Bodegas El Grifo are the oldest bodegas in the Canary Islands. They were built just after a volcanic eruption, around 1775. The bodegas have 50 hectares of vines planted in the volcanic soils.
The bodegas are still in operation and produce high quality wines (some of the best in Lanzarote).
- Wine Museum, this was built into the old bodegas of El Grifo, and here you can walk around and learn about its history and production. At this museum dedicated to wine lovers, you can see the old presses, bottling machines, and the tools that used to be used. It is also home to a library with over 3,000 volumes on wines, some dating back to the 16th Century. Don’t forget, it has free entry.
