Tucked away in a far corner of Algaida is located the ecologically driven Bodega Can Majoral. Currently run by the second generation, the family bodega has been dedicated to organic farming since planting the first vines 35 years ago.
Senior owner Andreu is highly regarded as one of the best organic farmers – far beyond the borders of Mallorca. His daughter Mireia has inherited his ecological awareness for a life in harmony with nature. “It’s important that the wines are drunk where they are produced,” is the simple message of Mireia. “We have our market on the doorstep; tourists come to us.” Therefore, only a few dealers abroad are “allowed” to have the wines of Can Majoral in stock.
Mireia does not want to compete with wineries which don’t follow ecological principles, though she need have no fear of the comparison. A special highlight is the annual grape harvest at full moon, when 200 volunteers and wine enthusiasts gather from around the world. The interest is so huge that there are even waiting lists. For the wine-growing family it means an organisational challenge: 400 busy hands, 200 buckets, 200 scissors, and 200 personal instructions. By way of thanks, Can Majoral holds a great feast for all harvesters. It is not easy to get one of the helper places, but it’s worth a try anyway.
Son Roig 2009
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot & 10% Syrah.
Great wine in the glass, shimmering in strong ruby colours. The bouquet is seductive due to nuances of black pepper, dark chocolate and fruity accents. On drinking, an unparalleled harmony of taste arises. The aftertaste is almost never ending – awesome!
Outstanding organic wine!
