Mallorcas Grape throwing History
History The history of this Spanish Grape fiesta (Festa Dels Trepitjadors - Sa Vermada Binissalem) is somewhat lost through the ages, however we do know that it was created as a way of seeing off the harvest season by ridding themselves of the “not so good” grapes before the Winter.
