Mallorca’s gastronomic culture is another one of the many aspects that make the island so attractive. You can’t say you have experienced Mallorca until you have tasted some of the many dishes that it is known for and treated yourself to it’s local beers and wines. Even though Alcudia is a small town, its gastronomic culture is extremely rich. It has a strong fishing tradition, but it is also a great place to savour some delicious tapas and is home to lots of bakeries too.
In the old town of Alcudia, wine from all over the island can be enjoyed in a great amount of charming patios. There’s also a passion for beer in Alcudia and you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity of visiting the local brewery.
If something makes Mallorca a unique place, it is its gastronomic culture. Nowadays food and travel go hand in hand as more and more people are looking to discover new culinary cultures as they travel around the world. Gastronomic tourism is rising in Spain, and Mallorca, with so much offer, is no exception.
Mallorca is especially well-known for its wine, which nowadays has a growing reputation. We have organised a series of wine tours to help you discover the most famous vineyards in Mallorca. You will learn a little about the process of making the wine and, of course the best part, enjoy taking part in some wine tasting.
On our wine tours we will also discover the inland villages where you can be charmed by Mallorca’s hidden corners away from the tourist buzz where most of the wine bodegas are.
We do have different wine tours in Mallorca available and they differ according to your taste or budget. Perhaps you would like to learn how wine in Mallorca is produced and visit one of the bigger wine cellars where they have top of the range machinery and technology. Or perhaps you prefer taking a step back in time to one of the small family-run bodegas that few people have heard of, where they were still do everything manually.
As well as wine tours, in Mallorca, we have also created for those who consider themselves foodies, a set of food tours to savour both Mallorcan and Spanish gastronomy in idyllic locations. So, if you would like to complete your visit to the island with a taste of Spain you can take part in one of our gourmet food tours around Mallorca. These tours will give you the chance to relish the island’s varied and appetising food culture of both savoury and sweet dishes as you learn about the rich history behind it. The opportunity to taste traditional and modern recipes at your fingertips!
Food tours are always fun but we have a wide selection so that you can choose the tour for you: do you fancy exploring the old town of Palma by bicycle on a tapas tour? Would you like to have a guided tapas tour around Palma's local tapas area during the evening time? Or perhaps you want to take the traditional guided walk with tastings included. Whatever you choose, you will have a fabulous time and will be left wishing to take your knowledge further.
We have an experience which combines tasting wine with tasting cheese. This is an informal activity that takes place in Alcudia in the pretty setting of Ranxo Ses Roques. The focus is on local gastronomy and all the products featured are produced locally. The wines are all made using single grape varieties so that participants can experience and learn about the local grapes from Mallorca and their use in wines. Some of the grape varities are not used outside of Mallorca, so this is a unique opportunity to taste these wines. The cheeses have all been selected because of their uniqueness or individuality too, one being produced at a farm in the Sierra de Tramuntana, another produced at the other side of the island, and some made with goats milk, cows milk or sheeps milk.
