The island can boast of land that provides unparalleled oenological wealth, producing wines with a markedly distinctive character.

The Designation of origin “DO Pla i Llevant” identify the wines produced in the regions of El Pla and Llevant. In this area's 19 municipalities, which include Algaida, Artà, Campos, Capdepera, Felanitx, Llucmajor and Manacor.

13 wineries and 70 winegrowers cultivate 450 hectares of vineyards, with "white" grape varieties like Chardonnay, Parellada, Prensal Blanco and Giró Ros, and red grapes like Merlot, Monastrell, Callet, Fogoneu and Gorgollassa. .  

Under this DO, white, rosé and red still wines and sparkling wines are produced, all expressing the land's character. The typically Mediterranean climate here makes for gentle winters and hot summers, with rains mainly in the autumn and the spring. Another key factor is the “embat”, a summer thermal wind that favours the ripening of the grapes and salinizes them, giving the wines their unique personality.
