Economist Thomas Neumann felt the desire to have his own vineyard as deeply as the roots of an old vine. After retirement he planned to make his dream come true somewhere in the Mediterranean. He flirted with Provence and Italy and, in the end, Mallorca was his choice. His lovely wife Alexandra had known the island for a long time and so Mallorca became their favourite location.
After a long search, they found the suitable place where his lifelong dream could be realised. It had an established vine plot with enough space for a bodega and a house. The winery was quickly built, but the construction permit for the house took around three years. Despite adversity, the Neumann family was not frustrated by local bureaucracy. “Nowhere else we could have realised our winery so quickly,” they told us. Mallorcan winemakers welcomed them warmly and praised their courage and commitment to invest.
Initial problems with their collaborator, Mallorcan enologist Tomeu, have been forgotten. “The different visions of the finished product were extreme,” Thomas Neumann remembers. He always wanted to produce an elegant, internationally-oriented wine. However, Tomeu wanted to be true to his local heritage.
Today, with the wines are successfully established on the market and the German owners have been proved right. Both the reds as well as the whites of ANA Vins are completely sold out. The whites are mainly consumed on the island, while the reds are exported to Germany, mostly ordered by friends of the family.
