The Fira del Vi In Consell

Ribas

The village of Consell celebrated the Fira del Vi yesterday, as part of its annual Fira del Tardor (autumn fair). The fira was not really a wine festival the way we know it from Binissalem, but rather a wine tasting exhibition, and a rather small scale one to boot. Three local bodegas were presenting their wines, as were Miquel Gelabert from Manacor, Vins Nadal from Binissalem and Celler Binigrau from nearby Biniali, and others.

I used the occasion to visit Ca’n Ribas, where Consell’s main vintners, Bodegues Ribas, operates. Today’s photo was taken there. Their Sió vino tinto is excellent if you want to know, an exquisite blend of Mantonegro, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The Ribas bodega is open for visits by prior appointment from Monday to Friday. Informative tours can be arranged for free by telephone (663.937.270).

The photo was taken in Consell, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: October 25th, 2009. The time was 14:37:13.
