The Balearic Islands are pure Mediterranean; its terrain is characterized by rocky soil and sandstone of red tones and its climate is of moderate temperatures and controlled rainfall. The islands are, above all, culture, tradition, sea and wine. The viticulture of the three main islands is composed of all these aspects. With two denominations of origin and six geographical indications, Balearic vines have been highly prized since Roman times. The influence of the Mediterranean climate has meant that, for centuries, the grapes produced in situ have left a very special flavor in the three varieties of wines, although the majority are reds.
