Discovering the wines of Mallorca
The island of Mallorca is known for its stunning beaches, crystal clear coves, mountains and exquisite gastronomy. But what not everyone knows is that this island is also an important producer of high quality wine. With a long winemaking history, Mallorca has a privileged climate and unique geographical characteristics that favor grape growing and wine production.

Mallorca's climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and warm, dry summers, resulting in a long growing season and high quality grape production. In addition, sea breezes and humidity from the sea contribute to a natural balance that favors grape production.

The geographical characteristics of Mallorca are also important in wine production. The island has diverse growing areas, from the mountainous interior to the coastal areas. Soils vary from calcareous to clayey, all of which contribute to the diversity of wines produced on the island.

The main grape varieties grown in Mallorca are the indigenous Manto Negro, Callet, Fogoneu, Giró Ros and Prensal Blanc. Each variety has its own unique characteristics and is particularly resistant to the island's climate and soil. These indigenous varieties are used to produce some of Mallorca's most renowned wines, such as Manto Negro reds and Prensal Blanc whites.

In addition to the native varieties, other international varieties are also grown, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. These varieties have adapted well to the climate and soil of Mallorca and are used to produce high quality wines.Main wine cellars in Mallorca.
