One Of The Most Innovative And Craziest Viticulture Projects

Our friends from abc Mallorca Magazine have done it again. A long and informative article on the town of Santanyí was published recently including a friendly recognition of Son Alegre and its wines.

One of the most innovative and craziest viticulture projects is currently under construction in Santanyí. The young winery has been subjected to biodynamic principles. Living with nature is not just lip service for Miquel Manresa. Commercially run vineyards are ploughed and ploughed: the vines shall not compete with other plants.

The Son Alegre soil, however, is not artificially changed. Respect for life of any kind is the most important thing. Every wild flower, every worm, every bee, and a variety of insects contribute to the circle of life. The vines are just a part of it. The principle is: “Leave nature undisturbed in the best possible way.” The sporadic watering for the plants comes from private wells. Electricity is produced by solar panels without CO2 emissions. Everything is well organised and gets back to the roots of winemaking……

Of course you will probably know that we do not only produce wine but also, olive oil, flour, almonds and carob. Yes, we are crazy but by the looks of it you seem to love what we are doing. And so do we.

¡Salut!
