Harvesting the Wine

Earlier this week, the annual wine harvest began in Mallorca, at least in some parts such as the region called Pla i Llevant which covers Petra, Porreres, Manacor and Felanitx. The grapes in the rest of the island will have another week or two to make the most of the current high temperatures and the absence of rain. The region of Binissalem, for instance, will begin its grape picking during the first week of September. The harvest there will culminate in the Festes del Vermar also known as Sa Vermada, a celebration lasting nine days leading up to the last weekend of September. The region of the Serra de Tramuntana is the last one when it comes to wine harvesting here in Mallorca due to the climatic conditions in this mountainous area.

El Vinyet is the title of a small but, fascinating exhibition about the harvesting of wine, the history of wine making in the Binissalem area and its literary connotations which is currently being shown at the Museo Llorenç Villalonga in Binissalem. Admission is free.

The photos were taken in Binissalem, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 23rd, 2011. The time was 15:25:43 and 15:26:51, respectively. Credit for the bottom photograph is due to Miquel Frontera Serra.

Moltes gràcies.
