Try the wines of Mallorca’s DO Pla i Llevant at Manacor event

Mallorca has two wine-producing regions with Designation of Origin status: the DO Binissalem and DO Pla i Llevant. Manacor is at the heart of the latter and, as part of its annual spring fiestas (Fires i Festes Primavera), is hosting the 12th Tast de Vins de la DO Pla i Llevant on May 30th.

Evidence of previous visits!

For a modest entrance fee (previously around 10 euros), you receive a tasting glass and discount voucher to be used on any purchase during the evening, then proceed to taste the wines offered by the participating wineries. A hugely popular part of the event for the good folks of Manacor is the availability of free snacks of local products, provided by local supermarket Hiper.

But it’s the wines that are the real focus  of this event, which is a great opportunity to discover wines you haven’t tried before, and to talk to the winemakers in attendance. The following bodegas will set up stalls within the atmospheric Baroque-style 18th-century cloister – which was completely restored during 2005 and 2006:

The XII Tast de Vins de la DO Pla i Llevant is organised by the Confraria de Tastavins de Manacor and is on Saturday, May 30th from 19:00h, in Manacor’s Sant Vicenç Ferrer cloister. It’s a  hugely popular event, with people usually queuing before the doors open.
