This is the most important and abundant variety in Lanzarote. On other islands of the archipelago, from where it had disappeared, it has been undergoing a reintroduction since the end of the XX century. This variety is not found outside the Canary Islands, not even sybollically.
According to our studies (Report La Malvasía Atlántica in NUESTRA INVESTIGACIÓN, in the directory LA BODEGA ), it is the variety with which the ancient wines were made, the Canari Wine, which reigned in Europe from the mid-XVI and all of the XVII centuries, disappearing during the XVIII century substituted by more productive white varieties such as the Listán Blanco.
In Lanzarote, where wine was not produced until the eruptions of the XVIII century made it possible, all of the existing varieties in the Canary Islands were introduced. From the XIX century onwards, Malvasía Volcánica went on to substitute the Listán Blanco, becoming the most abundant variety. We use it to produce all of our monovarietal Malvasía wines: Dry, semisweet, as well as sweet.
