Fira del Vi, Pollensa Wine Festival 2012

Coming up this weekend in Mallorca is one of the highlights of the gastronomic events calendar on the island: The Fira del Vi, Pollensa’s popular wine festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday, the 21st and 22nd of April.

If you are on the island this weekend, please do take the time to visit it, it is well worth it and a truly unique opportunity to try some of the island’s wines.

This is the ninth edition of this wine fair and the motto for this year is:
‘‘Wine is a work of art. The same grape varieties can be used to produce very different wines.’’

36 different wineries will be taking part, including wine makers from Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza.

On purchasing an entrance ticket you are given a wine glass and can then wander from stall to stall trying different wines and meeting the winemakers in person.

The fair will be open on Saturday the 21st from 10:00 to 20:30 and on Sunday the 22nd from 10:00 to 14:00 and takes place at the Claustre del Convent de Sant Domingo in Pollensa.
