It sounds tempting: Offer guests their own wine. Anyone who doesn´t want to become a winemaker, should drive to Porreres and visit organic farmer Carlos Feliu. To give a special charm to his beautiful finca hotel, Carlos planted vines. He never had the idea of producing wine. He wanted to sell the grapes. Initially it worked, but one day just before the harvest, the buyer bailed out. Frustrated, Carlos drove off and bought all the stainless-steel tanks available on the island.
His job as eco-hotelier was then complemented by the second vocation as organic winemaker. His wine finca is the only touristic concept of this kind, where guests can stay the night in the middle of a vineyard. The approach is called ‘Certified Organic Agro Turismo’. Can Feliu stands for conscious use of nature. On 11 hectares of vineyards, work is strictly carried out following the principles of the organic seal ‘Demeter’. Thus Carlos proves to his clients the seriousness of his organic methods.
The smart winemaker has also come up with something special in wine marketing.‘Become your own winemaker’ is the concept. Almost the entire production is already sold at the time of harvesting the grapes. So-called ‘barrel customers’ make their own creations with Carlos’s help. This means that the goods are bottled, labelled, and shipped as specified by the buyer.
60% Cabernet & 40% Callet.
Here is a great wine in the glass: A ruby red translucent body with garnet reflections. It is a play of colours, as if you are looking through a church window. The nose is flooded with ripe wild fruity aromas. The oak barrel is very present. It is delicious on the palate, lush but harmonious, with tannins and glaze. Gleaming finish.
These organic wines are fun!
Alé de Merlot 2011
A red wine shining seductively in the glass. It has an opulent bouquet with aromas of ripe strawberries and raspberries. The development in barrels has given it more delicate notes of oak. The expressive body delivers raspberry on the palate. Long-lasting finish.
This organic wine makes double joy!
