Overview

The Wine Museum is the oldest winery in the Canary Islands and one of the ten oldest in Spain. The current owners are the fifth generation of a family who bought it from another family in 1880. It's placed in the protected zone of "La Geria" which was covered with lava and ash after the volcanic eruptions from 1730 to 1736. Inside, you will find wine presses, pumps, crushers, stills ... etc., everything from the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. We invite you on a walk through our vineyard in the heart of la Geria and to taste our Wines. Come and visit our winery, we will be pleased to attend you

This is a good place for a quick visit in an afternoon. We stopped for a glass of wine and snack in the courtyard and bought a bottle to take away.

Beautiful family winemakery, the small museum is nice to have a look around but probably more informative when visited with a guide. But the walk around the vineyard and wine tasting on the cosy terrace are the true reasons to visit. Very good quality wines!...More
