Bodega El Chupadero, Yaiza
At the spectacular wine region of La Geria are some of the best bodegas in Lanzarote. Since 1981 the bodega El Chupadero offers not only food and drinks but also a lot of cultural events. Owner Barbara Hendriks has accomplished gradually to change the old ruined house into a bodega with its very own style that invites in all his beautiful corners to relax and enjoy.
The main attraction for many visitors is the big terrace in front of the bodega where you can enjoy having some local wine and typical tapas whilst admiring excellent views over the amazing wine region. Especially during the sunset, when everything is bathed into a warm light, nature offers here its best works of art. Also inside El Chupadero there is a lot to offer, next to the rustically-modern main room with its long bar you will find a lot of nicely decorated corners that are really popular among couples and families. The complete layout of the bodega is designed to give delight.
Since the beginning almost 30 years ago El Chupadero was and is a regular place of cultural events. The legendary full moon parties of the 80s and 90s have gone and made way for regular concerts and show programs. But the clients are still the same and always come back to their favourite bodega.
Whilst driving through La Geria look for the big black monolith with the Chupadero logo. Here you can try the island wine, tasty tapas as papas arrugadas with mojo, dates with bacon or delicious goat cheese and relax in a beautiful surrounding. And for people, who like the place so much that they don?t want to leave, El Chupadero also offers an equally beautiful designed guest house.
