Did you know that there are over 70 wineries and 500 different wines? These figures give us a clue as to how much Mallorcan wine production has experienced a ‘boom’ in the last fifty years, so much so that it has two appellations of its own: Binissalem and Pla i LLevant.
The Mediterranean climate and the island’s geographical location explain why vineyards can be seen all over the island, growing different varieties of grapes: Chardonnay, Moscatel, Parellada, Manto Negro, Moll, Merlot, …. Each with its own individual flavour that imparts a unique character to every bottle. We’re sure you already know that every wine tells a different story and reflects the characteristics of the earth where the grapes were grown.
An unmissable experience for wine lovers
If you’d like to explore this emerging wine region and experience something special that combines the natural beauty of the island with a passion for wine, Nivia Born Boutique Hotel has two wine-tasting trips available to exceptional wineries, both with growing reputations.
Taste exquisite wines and learn more about the winemaking process, from the harvest to fermentation, and the aging phases. The experts that accompany you will reveal fascinating information about each grape variety, as well as explain the techniques used to create the wine that you will later be tasting, paired with the best local produce.
Bodegas Ribas: respect for tradition
