HIERBAS: IBIZA'S LIQUID GOLD

08.05.2019

When it comes to alcohol, our knowledge rarely extends beyond two things: what we like and what we don’t like. Of course, this could simply be because alcohol is largely considered to be a social lubricant – we sip it at dinner, on dance floors and at celebrations, or whenever there’s cause to raise a glass in toast. This largely superficial method of appreciation means we have a tendency to overlook the stories behind the beverage, which are often rich in tradition, history and myth.

Ancient vines, modern wines – Winemaking in Ibiza

04.04.2019

Ibiza owes a great debt to the Phoenicians. These intrepid travellers and traders settled in Ibiza some time around 650 B.C. bringing with them knowledge of navigation, various gods and goddesses, farming systems and building methods but the gift we should all be most thankful for is wine. Thanks to the Phoenicians, Ibiza has been cultivating grapes and producing wine for over 2,700 years and by the first century, ancient Greek historians were describing the island as a land of vines. Amphorae, cups and other objects have been discovered and some archaeologists have even surmised that the majority of wine consumed on the mainland in ancient Spain was once imported from Ibiza.
