Binissalem Mallorca DO

Binissalem was the first of the Balearic Island’s Denominations of Origin to be granted this status in 1990. It takes its name from the growing area’s largest town, located at the centre of the island of Mallorca.

The wines from this area have distinctive character and remarkable quality thanks to the native grape varieties from which they are made, although today modern wines blended with recently planted varieties from abroad are also successful.

The native Manto Negro grape has shown a tremendous potential for ageing, which suggests that this area may produce great wines in the future.

The wineries in this DO are now equipped with the very latest technological advances.
