Activity Overview
Ethnography of Lanzarote
This will be a chance to learn and understand the practices behind the success of Lanzarote’s agricultural sector. We will learn about the uniqueness of Lanzarote’s products, cultivation and how the transformation happens, from the past to modern practices. Our tour will include:

Cheese
We will tour one of Lanzarote’s artisanal cheese makers. Here, we will have a firsthand experience of the famed goat cheese making process. That will be followed by a tasting episode of some of the goat cheeses of Lanzarote.

Wine
We will visit the vineyards of the unique La Geria landscape and see how the locals dig holes in the volcanic ash to plant the Malvasia grapes and other grape varieties. A traditional wine cellar will serve as our classroom as we experience the winemaking process while we taste at least four wines, accompanied by a variety of cheeses.

Farming
Besides visiting the vineyards of La Geria, we will get a chance to visit other cultivation styles like the Jable and the sanded. We will learn how locals have adopted the land into productive sweet potato farms, despite hardly having any rains all year round.

History
A visit to a mid-nineteenth century agricultural estate will enlighten us on the agriculture, storage, milling, drying, water channeling and storage, and transportation vessels of our ancestors.
