For most people wine-tasting and Mallorca wineries may not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a Mallorca holiday. Though over the last 10 years winemaking has evolved on the island and to go on wine tours is a great combination of exploring the beauty of the island and at the same time enjoy some local culture.
Mallorca wines have gained praise in recent years and while the island has smaller-scale production there are still some amazing surprises waiting for thirsty grape lovers.
Wine tasting and going on wine tours is becoming a major attraction in Mallorca as visitors have gotten their eyes opened to the diversity of wines produced on Mallorca. Mallorca wines do rival some of the best in the world and they are an amazing bargain.
Why not plan your own wine tour and enjoy the day at the pace you want it or if you want to take the ease of getting it arranged by the experts, book an organized wine tour. The best way to sample any wine is to head straight to the source, where you can taste the region in the glass.
There are five different areas on the island, all with different climates that create completely different wines: the Sierra Tramuntana (mountain chain on the west), el Raiguer (long tail area crossing the island), el Pla (central flat part), Serra de Llevant (hilly area), and el Mijorn (a flat in the south near the sea).
It is easy to explore the wine culture of the island as several of the wineries are situated within small distance from each other. Explore by yourself or go on an organized tour. Just remember that most wineries require reservation to be made prior to the visit.
We have listed a variety of small and big wineries, all with character and good quality wine.
