FINCA DE LOS DOS CABALLEROS
The vineyard is a dream come true for the owners, but for one of them, winemaking is a family tradition. Growing up on a vineyard watching his grandfather tend the vines year after year cultivated a deep love for viticulture and was the inspiration for this unique project.
Los Dos Caballeros
With the help of a local winemaker and after a careful analysis of the soil and the climatic conditions, the project was born.
We decided to plant two types of grapes to be able to produce a white, red and a rosé wine.
Wine & Grapes
The white wine will be a Sauvignon Blanc, which we hope will be dry yet fruity. Given the soil we have high hopes for our future harvests. It is planted in front of the pool and main house and therefore is the varietal directly visible from the accomodations.
The red grape will be a Grenache (Granatxa), a very old and heat resistant grape varietal from Spain which will be used to produce a full-bodied red and a rosé which will be grown in the more rocky and sandy part of the vineyard. The grapes for the red are located on the left field, while the grapes for the rosé are planted on the smaller, slightly elevated field to the right of the main house.
The first harvest for white wine production is expected in 2021, and the first harvest for red and rosé in 2022.
At Los Dos Caballeros, we care for the environment and try to be sustainable wherever possible. We have installed a state of the art solar energy system which delivers the power to the whole finca. We elected not to connect to the power grid so that we can remain completely self-sufficient by using renewable energy.
The Online Shop
We will sell our wine in our bodega, selected wine shops on the island and in our online shop. As soon as our first harvest is bottled, you can order online here. Shipping will be provided.
