History of wine in Mallorca
Mallorcan vineyards have been cultivated since Roman times. However, the moment of splendour for the island’s wine world came in the 19th century when, due to phylloxera in France and in order to save wine production in that country, the decision was taken to export it to Spain and Italy. Some time later, this plague also reached the Mallorcan island, causing many vines to disappear.
Nowadays this sector is booming again as new vineyards have been planted, new varieties have been incorporated and cultivation techniques have evolved together with technological advances, which has allowed the production and quality of these Mallorcan wines to increase.
