The programme looks at the culture, food, landscape and local residents in Mallorca.

“In Mallorca we have found a super-fresh zone and in every way,” said director Alicia Van Assche.

“The sector is really exciting and Mallorca wine is really up and coming.”

The crew filmed around Sa Calobra, the Torrent de Pareis, Santuario de Lluc, Formentor and Soller.

Mallorca wines have experienced a boom in recent years, with sales up 21% in 2016.

The 13 bodegas under the Denominación de Origen (D.O.) Pla i Llevant de Mallorca umbrella sold 1,283,400 litres of plonk last year, 220,000 than in 2015.
