In September 1999, we harvested 3,000 kg of overripe Listán Negro. The grapes were intermittently trodden by feet over the course of several days. The subsequent fermentation was interrupted by adding wine alcohol when the grape juice reached the desired density to maintain the residual sugar. The wine has been kept in oak barrels since 1999. In December 2012, we bottled the resulting 2,000 litres in 4,000 50-cl bottles.
George Glas, a Scottish merchant and traveller, visited the Canary Islands in the mid-18th century. He described the local trade and customs of each island, and witnessed the birth of Lanzarote wine. The library at the Wine Museum has a copy of his work titled The History of the Discovery and Conquest of the Canary Islands, published in London in 1764. This is probably the most important travel book about the Canary Islands in British historiography.
