Wine routes in Mallorca
In case you didn’t know, Mallorca is actually famous all over Europe for its wine production. There are two areas of the island concentrating the highest amount of wine produce: Binissalem and Pla i Llevant. Then you also have the ‘Vi de la Terra’ areas. With suitable land and a similar climate to the South of France, Spain and Italy, it should be no surprise that Mallorca possesses optimal vine growing conditions
And if you’re visiting the island any time soon, we’ll be happy to help you decide where to go to taste and discover Mallorca’s best wine:
José Luis Ferrer
José Luis Ferrer is a large wine grower with an amazing selection of wines. We must say this is where some of our favourite Majorcan wines come from. Founded in 1931 they have a wide range of varieties, such as ‘Manto Negro’, ‘Moll’, ‘Macabeo’, ‘Callet’ and ‘Parellada’ and also Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
If you are planning to visit their vineyard, it’ll be good to know that they offer tours of the winery including explanations about the history of the winery and the wine making process in addition to tasting of many of their best wines.
Bodega Biniagual is a family-run business in the very heart of Binissalem, Mallorca’s biggest wine region. They are known for producing traditional Majorcan wines. A very interesting fact about Biniagual is that in 1999 the phylloxera plague destroyed everything and after this plague they had to plant all of their vines again. Their red wines are blends of different varieties from Spain based on local grape Manto Negro. Arrange a visit & discover the history and tradition behind wine making and enjoy the best tasting on the island!
At Macià Batle has a long history of wine making. Located between Palma and Inca, this winery was founded in 1856. After a long history of tradition, a new generation of grape growers and oenologists have created a new range of excellent wines using traditional Majorcan vines such as Callet, Prensal and Manto Negro.
They not only offer guided tours and visits, but also have a shop. Any of their guided tours include a tasting of four wines combined with local specialties.
So, if you’re ready to try some of Mallorca’s best wines, we will be happy to arrange a visit to any of these bodegas while staying at Nakar Hotel. You can always ask our front desk team for some help & any kind of advice!
