The wine route in Mallorca starts right in the center of Mallorca. In the areas of Santa María, Binissalem, Consell and Sencelles, the best wineries in Mallorca are concentrated. All of them a few kilometers away from the Costa Azul Hotel, such as José L Ferrer, Macia Batle, Binigual or Bodegas Jaume de Puntiró, among many others. In them you will not only enjoy tasting a good wine, but you will also know a little more about the Mallorcan culture and tradition and how to make a good Mallorcan wine. If we go to the East of the island, in the area of Manacor, we will also find several well-known vineyards. About 50 kilometers from the Hotel Costa Azul on the Paseo Marítimo in Palma, in the 4 Kilos Winery (Felanitx), you will find the story of a musician and an oenologist who founded this company in a garage using milk containers for their first wines. Today, the winery is full of awards for its excellent wines that combine creativity and deep knowledge. If you want to know one of the oldest wineries in Mallorca, we recommend Bodegas Ribas (Consell). Founded in 1711, it offers a full visit for € 15 including, in addition, an oil tasting. Another well-known winery is José Luis Ferrer (Binissalem), about 20 minutes from the Hotel Costa Azul, founded in 1931. It has always been a family business. One of the largest wineries in Mallorca is Macia Batle (Santa María del Camí), with some 70 hectares of vineyards. Among the most modern at the same time as traditional, Ànima Negra (Felanitx). They produce high quality wines with a lot of body, from varieties of native grapes, mainly callet.
