PRLog - Aug. 5, 2011 - Unknown to many tourists, Mallorca has seen a surprising increase in the production of wines with approximately 60 wine estates now producing over 300 different wines.  And the best time to visit the local bodegas is in September when the grape harvest is in full swing and celebrations take place. For authentic accommodation, Mallorca Farmhouses offer a selection of properties, some of which even have their own vineyards, from just £136 per person, per week this September.

Binissalem is the largest wine-producing region in Mallorca and home to some of the island’s leading vineyards. The successful, family-run bodega, Macià Batle, produces a variety wines and offers tours of the whole wine-producing process, as well as the chance to taste their award-winning vintage bottles.  Other notable bodegas in the region include the José Luis Ferrer Wine Estate which was awarded for having the best sweet white wine in Spain and the eco-friendly Celler Tianna Negra which uses solar energy to produce nearly 100,000 litres of wine each year.

However a trip in September is particularly good for visitors.  The sleepy streets of Binissalem come alive to celebrate La Festa des Vernar wine festival.  Taking place between 14-26 September, this annual festival includes parades, grape crushing competitions and all-day wine tasting to celebrate the start of the autumn harvest. The highlight of the festival is the final Saturday when villagers follow a drummer and piper to a field where a massive grape fight begins!

For wine lovers looking for a relaxing retreat, Mallorca Farmhouses offer a selection of self-catering villas and farmhouses throughout the island from just £136 per person, per week this September (based on eight sharing).  Ideal for couples, families and groups of friends, the homes are an ideal place to enjoy a bottle of local wine in the evenings. Picture a vine-covered outdoor terrace with views of rolling countryside.  Some properties even have their own private vineyard.  

All properties include a private pool, welcome pack and maid service.  For further information contact Mallorca Farmhouses on 0845 800 8080 or visit www.mallorca.co.uk.
