SANT JOAN 2020

Celebrate it with responsability!

Surely, this year Sant Joan celebration will be different, but do not forget to celebrate it, with little but good company, and toast with our wines. Wines made with local varieties of vines that have been pampered and cared for by several generations of winegrowers, who have worked to maintain this interior landscape, which transmits a history of wine culture and natural heritage.
Happy Sant Joan for everyone!

We talk about the history, the landscape, the wines, the native grape varieties and the production, elaboration and marketing statistics.

In recent years, wine tourism is another activity of wineries. The ‘Wine Route’ offers you a tourist attraction to visit the territory, the vineyards and the wineries, tasting the wines of the DO accompanied by the local cuisine. Getting lost in a market, visiting a cultural centre, walking along a path between vineyards or through the streets of towns and villages, with details of a unique architecture in each of them.

The wine-related festivals, Festa des Vermar de Binissalem, the Festa del Vi Novell de Santa Maria, Wine Days… are some of the events that take place in the region and that increasingly have more local and foreign visitors.

The people who are part of this Designation of Origin work in different fields, the wine growers and winemakers, to preserve the landscape of vineyards and the legacy received from the ancestors, producing a quality grape and making unique wines with a marked character, printed by them characteristics of the soil, climate and local grape varieties.

The technicians work to promote the DO and verify compliance with the product specifications. We explain the certification, the verification by the Regulatory Council that the wines comply with the Specification, which translates into the label numbered with the DO Binissalem mark, which you will find in all the bottles of wines covered by the DO Binissalem.

HARVEST STARTS AT THE DO BINISSALEM. Quality and uniqueness

Tuesday, August 13, the harvest officially begins at the Binissalem DO. Can Verdura Viticultors has been the first winery of the DO Binissalem, which has started the harvest with the Chardonnay variety.

In the next few days and weeks the rest of the wineries and vineyards of the villages of Santa María del Camí, Consell, Binissalem, Santa Eugènia and Sencelles will begin their activity. The harvest will last until October and until the end of November, the wine elaboration.

The earliest varieties such as Chardonnay or Moscatel are the first to be harvested and, progressively, will be followed by Shiraz, Merlot and then Mantonegro, Callet, Cabernet Sauvignon, or the white varieties Moll or Giró ros, among others.

When walking through the region of the DO Binissalem, you can see “seas of green vineyards”, with their clusters hanging, some already poisoned and in the process of maturation. From this moment until October, you will be able to see grape pickers and harvesters, trailers that come and go from the vineyards to the wineries and the installations underway. The tanks will begin to fill and a sweet aroma will perfume everything.

The winemakers pending, day by day, of the weather conditions, the ripening of the fruit and having everything ready to start making the wines, will decide the ideal time of the harvest, according to the maturation of each variety, and to each wine you want to make.

The vines will bear the appreciated fruit, the grape to elaborate unique wines, with the character of the Binissalem Designation of Origin.

In this campaign a moderate production is expected, perhaps a little lower than that of the previous campaign which was 1,615,000 kg.

At this time, the grape has an excellent sanitary state and quality, which suggests that we will have a good harvest.

The dedication of winemakers and winemakers makes it possible for us to enjoy quality wines with Denomination of Origin, based on our native varieties, in addition to maintaining a landscape and an agricultural activity with an important weight within our economy. The wine activity also favors inland tourism, “winetourism”, quality tourism, interested in the landscape, our culture and local products such as wine.
