The Bodegues Miquel Oliver in Petra have lots of reasons to be cheerful. Three of their wines (Syrah Negre, Ses Ferritges and Aia) were awarded amongst the highest laurels in recent international wine competitions in Spain, Switzerland and Germany. Their Aia 2006 was rated as one of the top three wines in all of Spain in La Guia Vivir el Vino 2009. All three vinos tintos are from the Pla i Levant region in Mallorca.
You can sample Miquel Oliver’s wines, the award winning ones as well as some other fine delectations, at this weekend’s wine fair in Pollença.
Pollença celebrates La Fira del Vi tomorrow and Sunday (April 25th and 26th), from 10h00 to 20h30 on Saturday and from 10h00 to 14h00 on Sunday. 42 bodegas will be presenting their bacchanalian nectars, 38 from Mallorca, three from Menorca and one from Ibiza.
This popular event is now in its sixth year. The fair takes place in the same location as every year, the Claustre Sant Domingo in Pollença’s old town. Admission fee will be 5 €, including a nice wine glass for your free samplings and yours to then take home.
