The San Juan Winery is located in a prized natural setting, near Monte Lentiscal and the Bandama Caldera. The climate in this area of Santa Brígada, Gran Canaria, and the renowned richness of this land, have created a beautiful landscape that invites visitors to enjoy the scenery and walk through the vineyards.
The winery has several rustic yet well-preserved spaces designed for events and presentations. Most notable are both the large function room (former storage area), with fine ceilings and wooden features, and the adjoining porticoed patios and the former press, fitted out for guided visits.
These spaces are available as exhibition spaces, areas for events (celebrations, courses, presentation of products), wine-tasting courses and training courses in other areas, etc. They are equipped and fitted out with installations for catering, light sources and sockets, parking, space dividers, a large format projector with screen and TV/internet connection…
Additionally, on our guided visits, guests are invited to discover the winery, the wine production process and the vineyards.
Vintage venues in a natural setting
A winery from the turn of the 20th century, with excellently conserved stonework and fine wooden architecture, is already an attractive space. But the natural setting and the winery’s activity afford it an added value that makes it a truly unique place.
The guided tour takes you on a visit of our vineyards. The tour starts with a walk to the wine press room, where we explain the winery’s history, the grape harvest and the wine-making process. Then we move on to the museum to get a look at old photos and see what the grape harvest process and machinery were like in the olden days. Afterward, we’ll visit the vineyard where visitors can contemplate the different grape varieties and the characteristics of the soil and climate. Then, we’ll visit the old wine cellar with its barrels and its altar with the wood carving of Saint John, for whom our winery was named. Lastly, we’ll offer a wine tasting in our in our hall of events.
