On the spectacular terrace of Victoria Garten´s private estate – with stunning views over the bays of Pollensa and Alcúdia – the self-made entrepreneur gives us a warm welcome. Not only the bay of Pollensa lies in front of us, but also her five-acre vineyard. The lifelong dream of Victoria, also called Vica, is realized. Vica is not an amateur winemaker. This quickly becomes clear in conversation. Well structured, clear and full of enthusiasm, she´s talking about her plans.

In Germany she´s already set up her own online shop for wines. Plus she´s opened a wine tasting venue at Düsseldorf´s ‘Medienhafen’. The construction plans for a new winery in Binissalem have been filed and the five acres of vines have been expanded to eleven acres. Earlier this year, another 17 acres of vines were planted. Surely the project will not stop here. With the cooperation with Hotel Son Brull, she is creating a special rosé, which will soon be growing. The surrounding fields of the romantic countryside hotel have been re-cultivated with vines and are now given a new purpose.
One thing is very clear to Victoria: “We will be producing high quality wine only”. We are very excited about the upcoming steps of this project. Good luck!
Animus & Sententia 2011
Callet, Fogoneu, Merlot, Syrah & Manto Negro.
A cuvée, which convinces in the ‘copa’. Its elegant red colour arouses interest. The bouquet reveals the hard work done for an elegant wine. Wild berry, thyme, and rosemary aromas come forth. A touch of dark chocolate is present. The effect on the palate is more elegant than striking – with dark berries, black cherry and Mediterranean spices. The finish is nice & fruity but without long-lasting effect.
An excellent cuvée!
