This fabulous day out combines a delightful walk on the old Postman's route from Esporles to the ancient terraced village of Banyalbufar, where we'll stop and sample some local Malvesia wines and local delicacies prepared especially for us. Banyalbufar consists of ancient Moorish terraces and the local wine growing community specialise in growing the Malvesia grape. Once we have arrived at this little lovely village we will stroll through the centre and shortly after passing the church we find one of the local bodegas where we will be enjoying a well earned break. At this little family run wineyard we will be received and introduced to the local traditions of wine producing in Banyalbufar.
Our tasting takes place at the most idyllic rustic spot just outside the little bodega with splendid seaviews. We enjoy a tasting local delicacies to accompany the wines whilst our host tells us all about the wine growers, the vines and the wines.
This day is a real treat!
Island weather can change very quickly and unexpectedly, so it is always advisable to be ready for anything. In the mountains, cloud can drop quickly and mist can come in from the sea, causing loss in visibility and fall in temperatures.
The terrain in Mallorca is rough so good footwear is essential. Most of our walks require walking boots with hard soles, good grip and ankle support. It is a good idea to wear your boots in well (if they are new!) before putting them to the test on some of our uncompromising, rocky surfaces.
September to early June are the main walking months on the island, and although not as hot as the summer, Sept/Oct and April/May can still be hot, and even in mid-winter sensitive skins can burn. Consequently, anything that you like to use to protect yourself from the sun – hat, cream, glasses, lip salve, long sleeves and long trousers….. is advisable.
Whatever the month it is essential to carry plenty of water, and a few snacks to top up your energy levels, are always advisable – just in case!
