About

Malvasia

The Wineyeards of Lanzarote are Craters and Crops in Volcanic Ash.

The Malvasia name is used for dry white wines, semi dry white wines, dessert wines, red wines, and fortified wines, using the same grape.

The Malvasia grape is also used in blends, such as in Italian Vin Santo.

On the island of Madeira, the names Malvasia and Malmsey have been used interchangeably for sweet Malvasia wines; however, "Malmsey" is now used exclusively for a sweet Madeira wine made from the Malvasia grape.
