Tasting in the Tramuntana
What better way to start a warm sunny Friday morning than a trip around one of our fantastic local vineyards, just as they begin the 2022 harvest. With our daughter and boyfriend staying with us we decided to take them for their first wine tasting experience in Mallorca. So we jumped in the car and headed up into the Tramuntana Mountains.
It is such a beautiful drive from Pollenca to the Mortitx winery and after your ears popping a couple of times you arrive at the gates to the winery, 400 metres above sea level. The drive alone is worth the the effort just to appreciate and take in the stunning scenery in every direction, but in this case we had the added bonus of a couple of hours of wine indulgence with Astrid who runs their wine experiences.
Now that we are living here in Pollença we have become slightly obsessed with local wines but thankfully we are not alone in this and have one or two friends (you know who you are!) who equally enjoy cracking open a bottle or two of some very good wines. Many of the wineries are in jaw dropping locations and Mortitx is up there with the best with its position in an absolutely stunning spot in the Serra de Tramuntana.
Have a read of our time spent with the wonderful Astrid who opened up our noses, pallets and eyes to the wonderful wines of Mortitix.
