Lack of rainfall cuts Balearic wine production, but improves the quality

Wine production has been reduced throughout the Balearic Islands. On Ibiza it has fallen by 16% on last year, reaching a total of 1457.35 hectolitres, and 13.57% in Formentera, to 165.65 hectolitres.

As for grape production in Ibiza 233.602 kilos were collected (about 12% less than in 2013) and Formentera, 29,372 (14.59% less than 2013). The decrease can be explained by last summer’s weather conditions, characterised by lower than normal rainfall and high temperatures even during the month of September.

However, the lack of moisture has positively influenced the quality of the grapes, so buy loads before it runs out…
