THE BEST WINERIES ALONG MALLORCA’S WINE ROUTE
A particularly interesting hotspot for wine connoisseurs is the Wine Route, which runs along Mallorca’s best wineries. From Binissalem through Biniagual and Sencelles to Santa Eugènia and Santa Maria del Camí, a wine-growing area with more than a dozen bodegas is enclosed by the wine route.
This is where eco-tourists meet local wine lovers and sample the different flavours that the traditional wineries conjure up from their specially cultivated exquisite vines.Wine tasting in Mallorca at Bodega Ribas
South of Binissalem in the heart of Mallorca is the Bodega Ribas, which has been family-run for over 300 years. Here, original Mallorcan grape varieties in particular are cultivated, preserved and refined in centuries of tradition. The choice of indigenous grape varieties, such as Manto-Negro, Prenal or Gargollassa, makes Ribas wine a very special Mallorcan original.
Wine tastings and tours of the winery and vaulted cellars are available by reservation from €18.00 per person.
Organic wines from Binigrau Mallorca
In the middle of Biniali is the Binigrau winery, which is one of the youngest wineries in Mallorca. However, this is in no way to deny the quality of the wines – the multi-award-winning, organically cultivated wine varieties of the three brothers behind Binigrau are reaping new successes every season. The Nounat in particular is considered a particularly excellent white wine from Mallorca that no wine lover should miss. And the initially inconspicuous bodega in Biniali is also worth a visit. The historic walls are architecturally combined with a lot of glass, allowing natural light to flood the rooms and a direct view into the barrique cellar. Wine tastings and prices on request.
Wine tasting in Mallorca at the Macià Batle Winery
Located in Santa Maria del Camí, the winery has been passionately producing excellent Mallorcan wine in a family tradition for generations. For over 150 years, Macià Batle wine has been able to make a name for itself, which has helped the winery to become famous – even on the mainland. It is not only the multiple award-winning wines that attract interested people from all over the world to the Macià Batle winery, but also events such as the moon concert that takes place every year in July are the talk of the town.
In addition to guided tours of the winery in many different languages and integrated wine tastings, which cost €12.00 per person and should be requested in advance, the winery is open on weekdays from 9:00-18:30.
But not only Mallorcan red wine and equally original Balearic white wine or rosé can be bought at the popular winery in Mallorca, delicacies such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar and pâtés from their own production are also available at the winery.
THIS IS THE BEST WINE FROM MALLORCA
If you want to buy wine in Mallorca, you are lucky to have a wide choice of wineries. With more than 70 wineries, the Balearic island offers the most diverse establishments with equally diverse cultivation and production methods. On closer inspection, it becomes clear that organic winegrowing is on everyone’s lips in Mallorca.
The Mallorcans love their homeland and do not want to pollute it with unnecessary pesticides – not even when growing grapes. The countless different grape varieties make wine growing in Mallorca so special: they originate from the island, were imported from France centuries ago or have only been cultivated in Mallorca’s vineyards for a few years to optimise the wines from other countries.
Miguel Gelabert wines from unique vineyards in Mallorca
Some of the most popular wines from Mallorca come from Miquel Gelabert. With his knowledge and his diverse wine creations, the winemaker enriches Mallorca and the Balearic wine culture like no other.
Every season, the passionate winemaker experiments anew with the harvest from his more than 50 different grape varieties, resulting in unique wines time and again. A special recommendation is the Gran Vinya Son Caules 2011, an excellent red wine that reflects Mallorca’s soul.
Wine from Mallorca from the Bodega Can Majoral
Located in Algaida, Bodega Can Majoral is known for its individual wines based on the French grape variety Viognier. Here, the Galdent is considered a special recommendation.
In the second generation, organic wine is cultivated on 17 hectares. It is not only the excellent wine varieties that make the family-run Can Majoral so popular. The opportunity to stand among the vines for a day once a year with 200 volunteer harvesters attracts many people to Mallorca to the winery.
Es Fangar Wine – ecological and sustainable
Located between Felanitx and Manacor, the Es Fangar winery is considered the largest organically farmed finca in Mallorca. Peter Eisenmann, who emigrated from Germany and bought the land on Es Fangar years ago in order to cultivate organic wine, relies on original methods without pesticides – but with his own fertilisation methods and a lot of time.
At the same time, he has been fighting for the complete preservation of the natural areas on Es Fangar since the beginning, so that the entire area is protected from exhaust fumes and other harmful influences. This is his recipe for producing the best wine in the Balearics. And he is supposed to be right about that: Three multi-award-winning wines are available under the name Twenty Twelve.
HERE YOU CAN BUY THE BEST WINES FROM MALLORCA
