Vinos El Campesino, Lanzarote

 Vinos el Campesino is a vin yard on the island of Lanzarote, I visited in 2013 whilst on a tour of the island and at that point was just starting to take an interest in photography as a hobby. The vines are grown in the surrounding plains in shallow pits dug in the ash, and protected by the constant breeze by low horseshoe style walling. The view from the front of the restaurant up to the mountains (I think they are mountains rather than big hills) is wonderful and the rows of vines in there little walled compartments was quite regimented. The Mountains (hills) are actually volcano craters with the Montana Blanca the more widely known of them.

On my visit there was a wine tasting and buffet meal which was reasonable for the price, which I am unable to remember but it was 9 years ago.

There are a total of 5 pictures which I took around the vin yard, they can be seen below or full size, resolution and un-watermarked on Clickasnap. They were taken on Tuesday 30th July 2013 using a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.


The mountain, hill or volcano crater is the Montana Blanca


As you can see the vines are well organised in there horse show shaped
pits, this is to protect from the constant breeze.
