Who else has realised it’s the last day of April today and wondered what happened to the rest of the month? This lockdown – with its days blending into each other because of their sameness – has made the month fly by. It’s the first of May tomorrow but, more importantly, it’s Mother’s Day in Spain on Sunday.
If you’re still fortunate enough to have your mum, and she’s in Mallorca, chances are that the lockdown will prevent you from seeing her in person. But you can still show her you love her, with a special gift delivered to her home. And this gift is full of the flavour of Mallorca.
Wise Women of Wine
Two of the women I most admire in the Mallorcan wine industry have come up with a home-delivery offer that I think would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift.
Bàrbara Mesquida (from the biodynamic winery Mesquida Mora in Porreres) and her great pal Mireia Oliver (Can Majoral organic winery in Algaida) have joined forces to offer a tasty gift that includes a bouquet of flowers and a locally made basket (which will be great to take to the beach when that’s possible again).
Here’s What’s Included:
- One bottle of Acrollam wine from Mesquida Mora
- One bottle of Callet from Can Majoral
- 1 box of Can Parrí dried apricots (this is a family firm based in Mallorca’s home of apricots, Porreres)
- 1 box of Bessó de Mallorca almonds (also from Porreres)
- 1 bouquet of flowers
- 1 locally made straw basket
The price for all this is 50 euros and I think this bounty of Mallorcan artisan goodness would be a real delight to receive – on any occasion.
This could be the perfect way to solve a gift-buying challenge during the current lockdown, be it for Mother’s Day, a birthday, anniversary, or simply a way to bring some cheer to someone in Mallorca who’s on their own.
And it’s also a practical way to support some of the businesses on this island during the current crisis.
If you’d like this for your mum, or anyone else (I’m sure you deserve a treat), email either of the following to place your order.
