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 in Germany, watching his grandfather tend to the vines year after year, cultivated a deep love for viticulture and was ultimately 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.
The owners decided to plant four grape varieties; sauvignon blanc, merlot, grenache and the mallorquin variety manto negro, which allow them to produce white, red and a rosé wines.
Wine & Grapes
The white wine is a sauvignon blanc, which is dry yet fruity. This varietal is planted in front of the pool and main house and therefore is the portion of the vineyard directly visible from the accomodations.
The red grapes are grenache (garnacha), a very old and heat resistant grape varietal from Spain, which we mainly use to produce a Provence style rosé. These vines are grown in the more rocky and sandy parts of our vineyard. The second red grape is merlot, which will add body and color to our future red wines, planned to be a grenache and merlot blend.
The merlot grapes are located in the fields at the entrance to the winery, while the grapes for the rosé are planted on the fields to the left and right of the sauvignon blanc in front of the main house.
At Los Dos Caballeros winery, 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 power to the whole finca and the bodega. We remain almost completely self-sufficient by using renewable energy. We implement eco-friendly farming practices and never use harmful chemicals or pesticides. We take sustainablity all the way to our at “km 0” produced wines, using bottles made of recycled glass and lables printed on recyled paper.
The Online Shop
In the future we will sell our wine in our bodega which is in the planning stages. However, our wine is available in our online shop and select restaurants in Mallorca and Barcelona. Shipping on the island of Mallorca is free. To view shipping charges to your address in Europe please visit our shop.
