Lanzarote, the most northeastern archipelago island, has possessed the D.O. status since 1994. The vineyard area covers 2310 ha, plus about 1000 ha to be replanted. The sub-zones are: La Geria, Tinago, Norte Haría-Yé. Frequent volcanic eruptions plagued Lanzarote during its existence. The ones that gave the island its present shape were in 1730-1736 and 1824. The landscape that remained after that was perfect for viticulture. However, the vineyards had to be protected from the Saharan winds from Africa. The solution was the "hoyos" or "rofes," excavated caves, sometimes 1 to 2 m deep, in which one vine was planted at a time. The result is impressive. We mainly work with white grapes; red grapes are rare on the island.
