Each year wine connoisseurs and industry professionals flock to the Claustre del Convent de Santo Domingo in Pollensa for the ‘Fira del Vi’, or Wine Festival, to sample hundreds of wines from Mallorca.
The wines of DO Montsant and DOQ Priorat are in the spotlight and take the opportunity to showcase the wines of the region to their consumers, many of whom are foreign residents and tourists that export the wines to their home countries.
The stands at the event are all numbered and visitors receive a book in which to make notes on the wines, and of course, a wine glass for the tasting itself. Each bodega will allow guests to try their wines and encourage them to buy them.
There is a nominal cover charge to enter the event which is open on Friday from 18.00 h until 21.00 h and Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 h until 21.00 h.
It is worth noting that there are no food stands available at the festival once inside the convent and once you enter you will not be permitted to leave.
