{European Sojourn-visit to Son Puig vineyards}


For those of you who have been reading my blog, you'll know that I spent a week in Mallorca in August to attend the wedding of some friends. The week was full of great things planned, including a trip to a nearby island & a tour of Palma.
Another organised visit by the lovely bride, Min, & the groom, Alex was a private tour of  Son Puig vineyards. The vineyard is run by a single family and just walking through the grounds, brings you back to another world. The estate dates back, I believe, to the Middle Ages and the buildings, the land, and the views were all breathtaking. After our tour of the vineyard & facilities, we tasted the wines & had tapas. The wines were really tasty, and we got a foretaste of paradise, as Son Puig were also the suppliers of Min & Alex's wedding.
Rather than babbling on, I think the photos will do better justice to the place than my clumsy language:
