General presentationGeneral presentation
Uga is a village wine from the island of Lanzarote; the village of about 800 inhabitants, is part of the municipality of Yaiza. In the village center - where the cubic and white houses contrast with the green palm trees - is the church of San Isidro Labrador.

The village of Uga - as the city of Yaiza - was affected by the massive volcanic eruptions that occurred in Lanzarote in the 1730s.
