Pizà is the surname of the family and the origin of the name comes from the ancient people of Pisa, Italy, who settled in Mallorca in the 12th century. Genuine recipients of an ancient tradition brought to the island 2000 years ago by the Romans, the family is proud to bring you a taste of the noble art of winemaking. The Finca has been the home of the Pizà family since 1679.

Food and wine tasting at Bodega Can Pizà
After touring the seven hectares of vineyards with a variety of native grapes, such as Mantonegro, Fogoneu, Giró Ros and Escursach, it is time to enjoy the wines. Before the tasting begins, you will be shown the tasteful finca and given detailed information about the wine making process. Then it is off to the garden with a stunning view to try the wine at a beautifully set table. If it gets a little chilly, you will be moved indoors where you will be welcomed by a cozy fire. Local sea salt paired with homemade extra virgin olive oil and bread accompany the tasting, as well as a board of local cheeses with Pamboli. Your host will explain you and your friends and family everything about their own sobrasada. Residents of the Balearic Islands are proud of their distinctive red sobrasada sausage. It is made from the meat of the local porc negre, or ‘black pig’, which is related to the ibérico pig of the mainland and it is seasoned with a local paprika ground from local red peppers. The meat and the seasonings are stuffed into casings, and the sausages are then hung to cure in the open air, usually for between one month and eight months, with the timing determined by the size and shape of the casing. Although from the outside sobrasada looks like a sausage, the unique texture inside is more like a soft pâté. Your sobrasada will be served spread on homemade toast made of freshly baked Mallorquin bread. The board is complemented by a selection of Iberian ham, dried nuts and homemade grape jam. After the variety of cold tapas you will be surprised by a seasonal starter paired with the perfect white wine. How about some paella as your main dish? Or would you rather try the local lamb, pork or chicken? While you are discussing which of the nine wines is your favorite, a private flamenco show adds a special note to this already extraordinary evening. Make sure to try the Cap Salines Blue, made with 100% Prensal Blanc, one of the local grapes. These unique grapes are not to be found anywhere else in the world and a touch of organic flowers gives the wine its intense blue color. Don’t forget to bring a couple of bottles home, they make for great presents for your loved ones!
Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life’s most civilized pleasures. Doing this in a stunning environment with the most welcoming hosts makes it extra special. As you say goodbye, the family dog will show up to accompany you to your car while the chickens make their way to their coops for the evening. Can you spot your yacht on your way back to Palma? The crew will be waiting for you to bring you back onboard for one final glass of your favorite local wine!
