Default Wine shop Joan XX111

Hi
Can anyone tell me if the wine shop on Joan XX111 is open this year. We like to support the independant shops.

Thank you

If you mean the one inbetween the doctors and the opticians (Sumiller Balear), yes, it is.

Slightly off the subjest but waiters in PP have given us more advice on trying different wines than anywhere else we visit

Baron du Ley and Emilio Mouro have become firm favourites

What a shame that they do not recommend the local wines. I always support local producers.

The nearby shop Tipic Balear is also worth a visit for purchasing local wines. They seem very knowledgeable & the wine we bought there was excellent!
lollipop and Family Ordonez like this.

Thanks for the tip on the wine shop.

When we were out in April, my wife took me here:

Start

Just outside Pollensa.

It was very pretty but i wasn't sure how the wine was going to be.

The German lady in the tasting room asked me what kind of wine i like so i told her, white Burgundy and red Bordeaux (yes i'm old,traditional and boring like that!)

She produced her white Ses Pedres,and it was far better than i expected:

Ses Pedres - All wines - Wines

However in Spanish terms, quite expensive.

And for the red she brought me this:

So del Xiprer

Again in Spanish terms, expensive, but as good as a mid range aged Bordeaux or similar Chianti...

For the quality, a bargain in London terms.

Yep, i feel i'm going to drink far too much in PP.

And i'm so looking forward to the wine festival next April.
