Winemaker and Owner – Victor Diaz

Bodega Vulcano, with its stylish winery based in Tias was established in 2009. The current owner and winemaker Victor, is the 5th generation of winemaker in his family. Their concept of making wine has always been traditional yet in a boutique style, making wines both with identity and soul. They specialise in producing young wines, by having several fermentations throughout the year, to keep exquisite quality and freshness. The must is kept in a temperature controlled ‘must bank’ (unfermented grape juice) and then processed as and when required. They were the pioneers in this process on the Island and now may other wineries have followed suit.

All of the wines at Bodega Vulcano are officially certified as Vegan, due to their type of clarification and filtration processes. They are the only winery on Lanzarote with this certification.
