From the 6th century AC the influence of Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans created an important wine tradition on the island. The smallholdings agricultural economy managed to keep vine growing and the art of making wine for private consumption, a tradition that has passed from parents to children until today.
In 1990, the wine trade was developed on the Pityusic Islands. In a short time, it has become one of the best essence wines in the Mediterranean. It is a limited production were quality goes before quantity. The resulting wines have a deep, provoking, and balsamic scent, with smooth but structured body, ideal to accompany any dish from the local gastronomy.
The local varieties are Monastrell and Garnacha grapes for red wines, while the most important variety for white wine is Malvasia. Ibizan wines are made and produced in areas of San Mateu, Buscastell, and Sant Josep.
Vins de la Terra is the geographic indication that collects all wine production in Ibiza according to EU regulation.
