While farmers and vintners in areas such as Binissalem are worried about the grape harvest, hit by rain which means the grapes have not ripened enough, in Muro they are overjoyed to be collecting their first grapes in 20 years. Jaume Perelló and his son, Tomeu Boyeras, are the men behind the operation, and they planted more than three hectares two years ago. Perelló said that they were inspired to do so because they “want good wine to return to Muro.” Several varieties have been planted, and Perelló hopes to harvest about ten tons of grapes, which will make 7'500 litres of wine. They plan to set up their own bodega in Muro, but in the meantime, the entire production has been bought by the Felanitx bodega Anima Negra. In Binissalem, some of the vines have been hit by botritis, which flourishes in the damp, and growers have been asked not to give any grapes affected to the wine cellars, in order to preserve quality.
