Taste a selection of wines made from indigenous Mallorcan grapes at a family-owned vineyard and browse a downtown market full of local products that you will enjoy sampling.
After departing from the pier, you will drive through Palma and on to the winery Tianna Negre in the island's interior. As you will discover while touring the estate, Tianna Negre is dedicated to recovering native grape varieties that disappeared following the phylloxera scourge that destroyed countless vineyards in the 19th century.
During brunch and a tasting in the cellar, you can expect to sample a selection of wines that reflect the terroir and the lime-rich, clay textured soil. You may be served a namesake Tianna Negre red blend made from Manto Negro and Syrah grapes, a Tianna Blanc with notes of ripe fruit from Giró Ros grapes, and a pink rosé with hints of grapefruit. Fresh-baked bread and extra virgin olive oil made from the estate's olives will complement the wines.
Back in Palma, you will browse energetic Olivar Market, where you will behold a cornucopia of garden-fresh fruits and vegetables, Mallorcan-made cheeses and succulent seafood. While meandering about, you will gain great insight into the gastronomy of Palma and daily life, as the market is typically abuzz with residents shopping and conversing with the vendors.
Following this eye-opening introduction to the market, you will head for Gastroteca Mauricio to taste an array of representative Mallorcan foods. A selection of indigenous wines and liqueurs will also be served.
