Among the high altitudes of the beautiful mountainous Serra De Tramuntana of Majorca, is Bodega Son Vich De Superna. The land holds a rich history and vines have been planted there since the 19th century. This uniqueness and exclusiveness of the area has made it to be one of four wine production areas in the world to be classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And the Sampol-Massanet family, who owns the estate since 1981, are making a good job in cherishing and nourishing the land with traditional and sustainable methods.
Bodega Son Vich De Superna, a Winery on High Altitudes
Another thing that makes Bodega Son Vich De Superna so special is that its estate covers land up to the altitude of 600 metres above sea level, the highest area in the island of Majorca. This results in fresh and unique wines that are nowhere else to be found. Among the three regional grape varieties Prensal, Manto Negro and Gorgollassa, the latter one grows on the highes altitude. Bodega Son Vich De Superna has won several awards for their exquisite wines, such as a Vunduero-Vinduoro-silver and a Berliner Wein Trophy-gold, both in the year 2019.
Bodega Son Vich De Superna continuously respects the nature during the wine working processes. Now they are even in the process of becoming organic. They continuously study the land in order to be able to carefully adapt their natural methods to the climate changes that vary in the microclimate that the estate is in. Since the conditions where the wines grow is not the easiest to work with, the workers have to manage all crops manually, like the island’s ancestors did back in the days. But it is all worth it, both for the environment and for the delicious wines that this hard work results in.
