Best of Mallorca | 2018 Text: Klaus Dörre
The WineBank in Palma de Mallorca is the brand new des-tination in the association of wineBank locations, and at the same time is rather “different” from the others. That might be because it is so strongly connected with a luminary of the gourmet scene in Mallorca – Emilio’s Innobar is in the selfsame building – creating a powerful synergy And Peter Eicker is host and club manager of the wineBar.
“One club. One community. One passion. Wine!” is the motto of the wineBank locations, whose members share an abiding weakness for noble vintages and savour a cultivated way of life at the highest possible level. That includes storage of their own private wine treasures. In the interim there are wineBanks in Basle, Saas-Fee, Frankfurt, Wachenheim/Pfalz, Cologne, Hamburg, Hattenheim/Rheingau, Mainz, Vienna and, soon, also in London and in the U.S. Since February, this meeting and networking hub has won the acclaim of
sophisticated connaisseurs in Palma de Mallorca as well.
Exclusive Club Atmosphere
Down below in the vaults, the liquid jewels belonging to members of this exclusive club are stored. On the upper floor, private members can enjoy wine tastings, events and dinners with friends or business partners in a stylish lounge atmosphere. On the mezzanine is the “Chef’s Table” for up to 12 persons, offering highly flexible dinner planning for very special, private events. wineBANKers can book this alcove for their own private purposes. Emilio Castrejón – or another maître de cuisine of their choice – will provide for their culinary pleasures. It is something quite unique, reserved exclusively to members of all the wineBANK locations throughout the world, and their guests, upon prior arrangement.
The Art of Wine
Innobar wine curator Peter Eicker is also in charge of the organisation of wines served by the glass as Club Manager. wineBANKers can select from among 24 continually changing open wines. With their keycard, members have access to the premises 24 hours a day. And apart from that, new international wineHighlights are regularly introduced.
Above and beyond that, wineBank Palma extends regular invitations to attend evenings of culture&artBank themes and music. Alongside these soirées, works of contemporary international artists enrich the ambience enormously. Currently, works by Jörg Baltes are on view.
