Wine production and marketing in Mallorca is a result of an age-old tradition of growing grapes and selling wine. For this reason, there are currently numerous high quality wineries all over Mallorca. In fact, wine tourism is very popular now because of the number of wineries that are open to the public.
In the north of Mallorca there are lots of vineyards producing wine. In this part of the island, it is possible to find very special wines produced in an eco-friendly way. Pollentia Properties offers you a visit to the best wineries in the north of the island.
The north of Mallorca is especially suitable for growing grapes. The quality of the soil, the climate and type of grapes that grow on the island are excellent reasons for the growth of this sector.
On the island there exist two specific certificates of origin: Pla I Llevant and Binissalem. As per these categories, wineries are authorized to use types of white grapes such as Premsal Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and red such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Mantenegro and Callet, among others.
Within the categories of origin, wines in Mallorca are labelled according to geographical location as Wine from the Balearic Islands, Wine from Mallorca and Wine from the Tramuntana Mountain Range, North Coast. The third location comprises wine produced in the area of the mountains between Andratx and Pollensa. Growing conditions are excellent due to its content in limestone and the Mediterranean climate which favours growth.
