At Can Vidalet Bodegas, winery in Mallorca, we are passionate about wine, which is why we are very excited to announce that we will be taking part in this year’s edition of the Fira del Vi in Pollença. This event was first established in 2004 by the Associació de vi primitiu de Pollença and ever since it has been a must attend event amongst both locals and tourists. Every year the Claustre de Sant Domingo fills with representatives from different wineries from across Mallorca and the whole Balearic Islands, taking part in a special two-day event. This year it will take place on the 11th and 12th of May. In this blog article we will be explaining more about the fair and what will be presenting during this year’s edition, keep reading to find out more.
Why was the Fira del Vi created?
Mallorca is an island known for its beautiful rural landscapes and pleasant all year-round climate. Making it the perfect place for wine production. So, it´s no wonder that there are currently 91 wineries operating in Mallorca. The importance of wine making in Mallorca has become part of its inhabitant’s roots and history, making wine and its production a crucial part of Mallorcan culture.
The organisation who first established this wine fair created it with three main objectives in mind:
- To promote and showcase the latest novelties from the wineries attending the fair as well presenting their most recent products.
- To link producers with distributers and restauranteurs in order to create a trade network.
- To raise awareness and show appreciation for the wine being produced in Mallorca.
