Sample a thoughtfully chosen selection of wines at Tianna Negre, a vineyard that produces several lines of wine made with indigenous Mallorcan grapes.


After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a panoramic drive through Palma de Mallorca, during which the guide will point out historical landmarks such as Bellver Castle. The famed Gothic landmark has overlooked the city since the 14th century.


Continuing on into the island’s interior, you will soon arrive at Tianna Negre, a family-owned and operated winery originally planted entirely with Manto Negro grapes. As you will discover while touring the estate, other grape varieties now flourish in the two vineyards. In fact, Tianna Negre is dedicated to recovering native Palma 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 as many as a half-dozen 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.


If you sample a wine from the vineyard’s Ses Nines line, you will notice that the label features a photo of a child skipping rope. The child became the mother of the winery’s founders. She inherited a small vineyard that over time grew to become Tianna Negre.
