The “Majuelo” Association of Winegrowers to be located in the Ecomuseum of La Alcogida

The “Majuelo” Association of Winegrowers of Fuerteventura will be located in the Ecomuseum of La Alcogida, in Tefía, thanks to a collaboration agreement with Fuerteventura's Cabildo. Those premises will be used for the Association's Meetings as well as the organisation of events carried out by the association to promote activities related to the agricultural and winemaking sectors. The space will be used to present everything related to Fuerteventura's traditional winemaking. Amongst the activities, courses on winemaking will take place, as well as tastings and practises for vine pruning. A laboratory will also be installed for the analysis of grape juice and wines. Furthermore, the agreement includes a space where typical Canarian grapevines will be grown, as well as the unique endemic vine from Fuerteventura, called “La Majorera”. This initiative aims at studying the development and productivity of vines in Fuerteventura.
