  • About

Wines from Spain’s first offshore do on the Mediterranean island of mallorca are mostly destined for the Balearic holiday resorts. Binissalem’s dominant grape, Manto Negro, is certainly capable of making well-balanced reds, although they can lack structure and character. The most common white variety is Moll, also called Prensal Blanc, which produces bland, neutral wines.
