The modern history of Bodegas Rubicón starts in 1979 when Don Germán López Figueras, a wine-lover, acquires the country house of La Geria from the Fajardo family. The country house, built in the 17th century, included a noble home, service quarters, the winery, which covered most of the constructed area, and a land of vineyards stretching on three hectares. Don Germán acquired the property mainly for the winery as he wanted to devote himself to his great passion: wine making
For decades, the winery used the equipment of the old winery to make wine in a home-made way: wooden traditional presses of the early 20th century, ancient stone presses dug in the ground, and cement tanks to store the wine. As years passed, more hectares of vineyard were acquired; the old winery was restored and extended to where, today, the Rubicón wine is produced. Set in La Geria and surrounded by centenarian eucalyptuses, the winery stands solemnly overlooking the National Park of Timanfaya.
The dream of creating a unique winery in order to preserve the traditions of Lanzarote is now a reality thanks to the tenacity of Don Germán.
His children, conscious of the value of his legacy, know they have an obligation to the future and that is why the López-Grimón family proudly manages the historic and artistic heritage of more than three centuries.
Bodegas Rubicon is a member of the Denomination of Origin Wines from Lanzarote.
The winery is open daily from 10:00 to 20:00h.
