Wine Run Lanzarote
June can be one of the best months to explore Lanzarote. Why? Flights to the island are very reasonable, its fairly quiet prior to the summer season rush, the weather is good but comfortable, plus you can pick up some great discounts to stay with us! Aside from all of that its one of our favourite months on the local events calendar too.
June is all about celebrating the Lanzarote wine region, with two fantastic events on consecutive weekends. This year the Lanzarote retreats team went along to support both of them.
On the 7th of June the Lanzarote wine region became the epicenter for fresh international music, celebrating at the La Geria Bodega with live music, wine tasting from all of the areas finest wineries plus a select gastro fair. A taste of Lanzarote, with the stunning Timanfaya back drop it was certainly an event we were happy to attend. Tickets for the main event at 7pm were 18 Euros, with live music at a free concert from 5pm until 7pm directly outside the Rubicon restaurant.
Once the party weekend was over it was time to get active with the Lanzarote wine Run event! We entered our office team into the diluted 10km walk, but for the die hard sports enthusiast there were two slightly tougher challeneges available to take part in:
- 23KM trail run
- 10KM trail run
What we loved about this event is that its aimed at people with all fitness levels, and offers the chance to explore the wine region in depth, (a truly unique area not to be missed). Meeting up with the locals, enjoying an afternoon with live music and good food at the start/finish line, whats not to love? As with Sonidos Liquidos there were samples from the local vineyards, we passed through five Bodegas on our walk, and sample cuisine from Lanzarotes finest. Along with the live entertainment this event was great fun for all ages whether taking part in the trail run or not.
Sonidos Liquidos and the Wine Run celebrate the unique and often unknown side to Lanzarote, with the added bonus that both also support ¨Salvar La Geria¨, this means that a percentage of the money raised is donated to the protection of the La Geria wine region.
