Bodegas Rubicón - Malpei

The modern history of Bodegas Rubicón starts in 1979 when Don Germán López Figueras, a wine-lover, acquires the country house of La Geria from the Fajardo family. The country house, built in the 17th century, included a noble home, service quarters, the winery which covered most of the constructed area, and a land of vineyards stretching on three hectares. Don Germán acquired the property mainly for the winery as he wanted to devote himself to his great passion: winemaking. For decades, the winery used the equipment of the old winery to make wine in a homemade way: traditional wooden presses of the early 20th century, ancient stone presses dug in the ground, and cement tanks to store the wine. As years passed, more hectares of vineyard were acquired. The old winery was restored and extended to where the Rubicón wine is produced today. Set in La Geria and surrounded by centenarian eucalyptuses, the winery stands solemnly overlooking the National Park of Timanfaya. 
The History
In large areas of land covered with black ash from volcanic eruptions, the manual work of man has led to a unique landscape in the world for its beauty and uniqueness. The area of La Geria in Lanzarote is known for its unique way of growing grapes from volcanic ash. The eruptions of the Timanfaya National Park forced to replace the cornfields per acres with vineyards. The result of that determination and need, planting vines in the ashes, the farmer worked the miracle making the earth yield grapes.
The Vineyard
Our century-old vineyards in holes dug in the ashes of the volcano create a way of cultivation that is unique in the world. This system of cultivation in holes of conic shape allows the vine to get to the soil under the dense layer of ashes. The depth and diameter of the holes depends on the density of the ashes, reaching in some areas three meters down.
