About the winery

The climate in the region is typically Mediterranean, with temperatures averaging 17ºC. Mild winters and hot and dry summers, provide optimum growing conditions for grapes, providing a very typical “terroir” character. The proximity of the sea is also a very significant element of the microclimate found near Llucmajor. The earth is composed of limestone and clay, giving it red tones, with a slightly alkaline acidity level. These characteristics allow for good drainage, and combined with low levels of earth and easy growing of roots provide ideal conditions for vine growing.

History & Geography

The many existing Talaiots found in the Llucmajor area and the ancient settlements such as Capocorb Vell, point to the fact that it was one of the first inhabited regions of Mallorca. It was also the first region of the island where Romans planted vineyards from which excellent wines were produced. In his book “Historia Natural”, Pliny the Elder wrote that the wines of the Balearic Islands were amongst the best wines of the Roman Empire. However, it was after the conquest of Mallorca after 1232 by King Jaume I that wine making on the island flourished. This was only interrupted by the arrival of the Phylloxera plague from mainland Europe in the 19th century, leaving behind it a trail of devastation and an abrupt decline of wine production in Mallorca. At the beginning of our century, Miguel Pascual, a true visionary, born amongst vines, planted a new vineyard on the estate of Sa Bassa Plana, thus recovering and revitalizing the wine making sector in the region.
