The president of the Binissalem Designation of Origin (DO) regulator, Josep Lluís Roses, says that although it is too early to make an exact assessment of this year's harvest, the anticipation is that wine production will fall by 25%. However, the quality will be "exceptional".

Roses was speaking ahead of Binissalem's Vermar grape harvest fiestas and fair, the most important celebration of Majorca's wine industry. This year will mark the fifty-third staging of the Vermar, which started life as an event organised by a group wine aficionados in Binissalem but was soon transformed into something much grander.

The president of the DO notes that only 40% of the grapes have so far been harvested but that the results indicate a fall in production. The quality of the grape, though, will be the key theme this year. "The great quality will compensate for the lack of product."
