This year's Wine Fair was great, and all the better for being back in the Cloister.

The island's wine producers have really raised their game since Covid IMO, and lots of them are making brilliant varietals that are the equal of any in the world. Particular mention to Vi Rei based in Lluc Major, who ironically weren't at the Fair, at least on Saturday, despite having Table 7 and being in the catalogue; though you can get most of their great range at good prices at Hiper Centro in Port Pollenca.

A quick question though - on the back of the catalogue it states Proxima Edicion 27/28 Maio 2024 - I've looked, and that's a Monday and Tuesday, whereas 27/28 April 2024 is a Saturday and Sunday - do you think it was a misprint and the next one will be 27/28 April? I need to know to get my flights booked!

For me the best value white was the Son Ramon 2022 Chardonnay, aged in oak barrels for 4 months. Similar to a lightly oaked Chablis. A bargain at €8 a bottle (used the €5 voucher, so it cost me €3!)

So - replying to myself, I contacted Vi Primitiu (the organisers) and they confirmed that it was a misprint in the booklet, and next year's Wine Fair will be on 27/28 April 2024 - get it in your diaries, it's not to be missed if you have any interest in wine

Just a thought - here at the moment and got caught in the road closures because of cycle race - another one on Friday and Sunday! Anyway the 312 cycle race 2024 is on 27th April - same as Wine Fair in Pollensa?
