What is Festa des Vermar?

The Festa des Vermar is a two-week celebration centered around the grape harvest in the town of Binissalem on the island of Mallorca. As you might expect, the festival has a lot of grape and wine activity. Perhaps the most famous part of the festival is the grape fight – huge piles of grapes that were rejected as unsuitable for wine-making are dumped in the street and a massive food fight ensues until all the grapes are crushed and destroyed! There is also a grape stomping competition, wine tastings, lots of local music and dancing. The festivities close with a community harvest supper or Fideus de Vermar – which consists of a local dish made of red wine, noodles, and mutton.

Need to Know

The festival usually takes place in mid-late September, but dates do vary from year to year.

Did You Know?

Mallorca has been making wine for a very long time – since about 100 years before Christ. An insect invasion at the end of the 19th Century severely crippled the Mallorca wine industry – until then more than 40,000 hectares of the island were under cultivation, today it is only about 2,500.
