Our Wine Cellar
We have recently established our own bodega (wine cellar). Since the harvest in August 2015 we have been vinifying, fermenting and creating our Son Alegre organic wines in our own wine cellar, which we share with our sister company Camp d’en Ventura in Calonge (Santanyí).
We have had ultra-modern stainless steel tanks built to order for us with a capacity of 1250, 1800, 2150 and 3500 litres. The vats are equipped with individual internal temperature control systems. The grape harvest at Son Alegre is always performed manually. At the new wine cellar, the grapes were carefully selected by hand, before being pressed by hydraulic means and stored in separate tanks, according to grape variety and location.
We continue to benefit from the expertise of our good friend Luis Armero González from Bodega Armero i Adrover in Felanitx, who is the oenologist for all our Son Alegre organic wines. Luis Armero is considered to be one of the pioneers of contemporary Mallorcan wine. His work and his wines are always subject to environmental considerations.
Our collaboration with Luis Armero began in 2008 and we are proud of the wines that we have since brought to the market with his help. We are very grateful to Luis for the tireless work and enthusiasm that he has dedicated to our wines so far, as well as for his commitment and passion.
In viniculture, every step counts. Every detail, every stroke, every nuance matters.
The Estación Enológica
The Estación Enológica de Felanitx, a Wine Research Centre, recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. It was inaugurated in 1913. At that time, Felanitx was one of the main centres of wine production in Mallorca. In fact, Felanitx was one of the prominent wine producing areas in all of Spain. At the time, the Estación Enológica was only the fourth such Research Centre in Spain, others being based in Haro (Logroño), Villafranca del Panadés, Requena, Reus and Madrid.
For almost three decades, the Estación Enológica in Felanitx played an important role in the study of everything related to the cultivation of vines and winemaking, not only for the Felanitx area but for the whole island of Mallorca. In the late 1950s, the laboratory was closed for good as a Research Centre for wine.
Every single action will make a difference.
