Among the many attractions the Balearics have, the Mediterranean cuisine is one of those increasing in popularity. Gourmet enthusiasts and more specifically wine connoisseurs find in Majorca an extraordinary place to sample the delights of the elixir of Bacchus.
Majorca’s fertile soil together with its suitable climate is essential to favour the production of high quality local wine. The origin of this tradition, which is gaining more and more recognition today, dates back to antiquity, in times of the Roman occupation. Particularly famous are the vineyards grown at the foothills of Serra de Tramuntana (north) as well as those from Pla (centre) and Llevant (east). However, the cradle of wine par excellence has historically been Binissalem and, more recently, Santa Maria and some of their most renowned cellars are those of José L. Ferrer, Vins Nadal, Macià Batle or Jaume de Puntiró.
Further Mallorca Wine Routes
The wine route does not end there, as other towns such as Sencelles, Porreres, Petra, Consell or Manacor are just a few examples where to continue touring. In this regard, there exist two guides, The Wine Route and Majorca, Island of Wine published by Denomination of origin of Binissalem and the Government of the Balearic Islands respectively.
Not only is Majorca a land ideally suited for vine-growing and wine production, but well-known firms also export their best stock far beyond its borders, all around the world. Sometimes the best calling cards for Majorcan wine producers to attract international buyers are the different public and private events organised, like Pollença’s Wine Fair in April or any of the several tastings and pairings that agritourism around the island offer throughout the year.
