The Art Of Wine Making

The 2011 wine harvest is done by now, at least here in Mallorca. It was a good year, or so one supposes. It may even make for an exceptional wine. We’ll just have to wait and see. Bodegas up and down the island are busy producing their new vintage with grapes and must fermenting in huge cooling tanks. In France, there is the tradition of making the young wine of the Beaujolais area into Beaujolais Nouveau selling this year’s vin as early as Mid November. Last year, I saw some young Mallorcan wine in the Nouveau or Primeur mode being offered sometime in November but, apparently it failed to create any craze the way it does in France and Britain.

In Binissalem, people are crazy enough, though, to present a large old oak barrel of yesteryear spewing a red-wine-coloured liquid into three smaller wine barrels as a kitschy adornment in one of the town’s traffic roundabouts on the road to Inca. It’s a bit cheesy, don’t you think?

The photos were chosen from my archive. They were taken in Binissalem, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The dates: September 18th, 2011, and October 25th, 2009. The time was 18:21:59 and 16:44:51, respectively.
