SPAIN | CANARY ISLANDS
The winery Bodega Los Bermejos, founded in 2001, takes its name from the reddish colour of the “vermilion” land, which is found under the volcanic ashes in the grounds where our estate is located.
Although newly founded, the winery premises date from the eighteenth century. On the walls of the old winery, formerly known as “Bodega Los Bello” we can see an inscription from 1920, the year in which the winery was renovated to become the current premises of Bodega Los Bermejos.
It is located in the area of Juan Bello, in the municipality of San Bartolomé, next to an old country house, in a typical vineyard area in Lanzarote, surrounded by other country houses, with their old wine presses and cellars, where all the wine grapes grown in the different vineyards of the area were taken to produce wine.
Nowadays, Bodega Los Bermejos has succeeded in combining tradition and modernity and, inside, we can find an old winepress but also the most state-of-the-art machinery.
Bodega Los Bermejos is located in a unique setting within the boundaries of the Natural Park of La Geria, in the Timanfaya National Park area. Our premises have been designed in such a way to minimise the environmental impact and to harmoniously become part of such as spectacular and valuable landscape.
Bodega Los Bermejos has a production capacity of 650,000 litres, with stainless steel tanks of different sizes (2 of 18,000 litres, 4 of 20,500 litres, 10 of 18,500 litres, 4 of 9,000 litres, 6 of 21,000 litres, 4 of 5,500 litres, 4 of 2,500 litres, 8 of 10.000 litres, 2 of 15,000 litres, 10 of 1,250 litres and 26 of 1,000 litres) so we are able to typify and develop a number of elaborations and types of wines. We have 70 French oak barrels, a number which is growing day by day.
LANZAROTE, THE VINYARD OF THE UNTHINKABLE
Lanzarote is one of the 7 islands that make up the Canaries. It is located approximately 125 km. (78 miles) from the African coast and 1,000 km (621 miles) from the Spanish mainland.
40% of its territory is composed of protected natural areas, Timanfaya National park being prominent among them, as it is the largest volcanic area in Spain.
“On the 1st September 1730 the ground cracked open in Timanfaya”. That is how the chronicle begins to narrate the story of the biggest volcanic eruption in the history of the Canaries and which, for six years, flowed, burying in lava and ashes the most fertile plains of Lanzarote, changing the landscape and giving rise to what would become the most astonishing vineyard landscape that you could ever imagine.
The viticulture developed in Lanzarote represents one of the most typical images of the island, not only because of the natural beauty of its design but also because it conveys all the exhausting work involved in its maintenance. A centenary vineyard, the most unusual landscape that it is today, beyond the mandatory photograph, an oenological treasure for all humankind.
