The building where Rubicon now stands is the oldest of the world famous La Geria wine region. The land, building and close-by chapel are the remains of the country house know as “La Geria” that gave the region its name and predates the volcanic eruptions of Timanfaya.
Between 1730 and 1736, the estate fell victim to Lanzarote’s worst period of volcanic eruptions, leaving it completely covered in volcanic ash. Luckily, they were able to dig up parts of the premises and the chapel itself, which to this day remains in its original state. It is said that there, in 1735, the famous cultivation of La Geria first began. Thanks to this, it’s home to some of the oldest vines in la Geria.
The Bodega as we know it today began in 1979, in the hands of Don Germán López. Since 2009, the bodega has been restored with modern facilities, while conserving its heritage. Now, Bodega Rubicón produce a wide range of wines through two different brands: Rubicón and Amalia.
An aromatic mix of white and tropical fruits with minerally notes.
A wine with great acidity and complexity thanks to its time on the lees.
A good combination would be pan fried tuna or a light, creamy pasta dish
