Ten wineries will feature at the opening event in Palma. | T. AYUGA


Wine Days Mallorca is a celebration of the finest quality wines from bodegas in the five municipalities that comprise the DO Binissalem designation of origin - Consell, Santa Eugenia, Santa Maria, Sencelles and Binissalem itself.

It is also, as the regulatory council says, about wine tourism, which is much more than visiting a winery and having a tasting. This type of tourism links culture, heritage and landscape, with wine being the common thread. From May 17 to 26, various activities have been arranged at selected bodegas, the opening event being in Palma - the superb setting of the Sant Francesc Basilica Cloister.(Friday, May 17; 6.30pm-10.30pm; Sant Francesc Basilica Cloister, Plaça Sant Francesc, Palma; Ten euros; winedaysmallorca.com) Ten wineries will feature. In addition, four chefs will prepare “author tapas” and other quality marks will be represented, e.g. those for Mallorcan olive oil and Mahon Minorcan cheese.
