Beautiful Biniagual – wine and hamlet

Bodega Biniagual

Bodega Biniagual

It’s an important time of year in the wine industry. Most bodegas have harvested their grapes (I read of one winery that was still gathering grapes in yesterday, when it rained substantially on Mallorca for the first time in months).

In the town of Binissalem – the heart of one of Mallorca’s two main DO wine-producing areas – the annual wine harvest fair (the Festa des Vermar) has been underway for a few days and ends this coming weekend. If you happen to be on Mallorca on Saturday 24th September, head for Binissalem to be part of the festivities, which include a parade of themed floats, wine tasting fair, and late-night dancing in the square to local bands and a DJ. It’ll be a lively affair …

Just a short drive from this hub of wine production is the gorgeous hideaway hamlet of Biniagual and, a little outside it, the Bodega Biniagual, which produces award-winning wines – 70 per cent of which are exported (mainly to Switzerland).

Here are some images of the hamlet and, below, a link to my article about Bodega Biniagual just published in Insiders Abroad magazine.

Water - not wine!- flows from the hamlet fountain.
