featured in News & reviews Author Jose Rains, Mallorca Reporter Updated

Neighbouring some of the most reputable wine regions in the world, Mallorca's wine naturally has a lot to live up to… but don’t be fooled, whilst its not commonly found outside of the Mallorca, its wonderful variety of wines is easily one of the island’s best kept secrets.

Mallorca enjoyed a golden period of being well renowned for its excellent quality of wine between the 14th and 19th centuries; this unfortunately came to an end when the vines were attacked by the 19th century plague: Phylloxera. Luckily the story doesn’t end here.... The 20th century experienced a steady improvement of wine production and thanks to advancements on modern winemaking equipment, they were able to really transform their offering. Now more widely celebrated, the unique characteristics of Mallorcan wines' continue to win prestigious awards in recent years.

Whilst the 21st century has seen the island’s wine industry flourish, the clever Mallorcans prefer to keep it mostly for themselves with very few bottles exported. You’ll most likely need to visit the wonderful island in order to sample these Balearic grapes and it will be well worth your while! Access to the vineyards is usually by appointment only, so book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
