Peculiar Vineyards Of Lanzarote
Peculiar Vineyards Of Lanzarote:
Lanzarote is a Spanish island in the Atlantic Ocean located some 125 km off the coast of Africa and 1,000 km from the Iberian Peninsula. The island was formed by volcanic eruptions more than 15 million years ago. The entire island is composed of volcanic rock and sand. There are no lush green fields, only solidified lava streams and vast plains of grim, black soil. The weather is hot and dry throughout the year, and rain is rare. On an average there are no more than 16 days of rainfall annually. It’s surprising that anything grows here at all. But Lanzarote has extensive vineyards and grapes are grown in abundance for wine cultivation.
