Our favourite lifestyle store in Palma
If you think Rialto Living only stands out from the rest through its on-trend clothing, enviable pieces of furniture and stylish home wares, think again. Palma’s much-loved concept store boasts a leafy, light-filled café where you can enjoy a quiet moment before heading back to the boat. And what better way to take the edge off a long afternoon provisioning for the yacht than by ordering a glass of chilled local wine? We can tell you that a glass of Rialto Living’s own wine, Coa Negra de Son Palou, will certainly do the revitalizing trick.
In 2004, Rialto Living’s owners planted vines on their private Mallorcan finca. Bodega Ribas, a renowned island winery with more than 300 years of wine-making experience, helped devise the vineyard and transforms its hand-selected grapes into wines that live up to their label.
Rialto Living’s rich and full-bodied red Coa Negra, a perfect marriage between the Mallorquin Gargollasa and the international Syrah grape, is an oenophile’s delight. The white Coa Negra Blanc will also make wine buffs’ taste buds sing. It features the local Prensal Blanc grape and a variety of international grapes and tastes deliciously fresh and fruity. But don’t take our word for it: have a sip! Whether you opt for a glass of red or white Coa Negre, we defy you to not feel tempted to order another!
Aside from a solitary glass, you can also purchase boxes of six bottles at the café. Why not decide on a box of each and surprise the yacht’s owner and his/her guests to a special wine they are unlikely to have tried anywhere else? We’re certain that yacht owners who love exploring the world of wine as much as they do paradisiacal islands, will thank you profusely.
Palma’s Rialto Living, conveniently located on Calle Sant Feliu 3, is just a stone’s throw away from STP and sells a wide selection of eye-catching super yacht must-haves. Have a snoop around and see for yourself. And if you make a purchase, don’t forget to flash your STP (or other) entry card so you can relax in their leafy, oasis-like café and sip on a complimentary ‘cafe con leche’ before you head back to the boat.
Rialto Living is now open between 11am and 7pm Monday – Saturday.
