Bodega Vi Rei, A New Winery Established in 2014
Bodega Vi Rei was established by Miguel Pascual in 2014 on the island of Mallorca. With great passion and dedication, he started the cultivation of vines and gave new life to the wine sector of Llucmajor. Respecting the traditional grape cultivation methods, he sowed one of the biggest vineyards, about 100 hectares, of Mallorca on the fertile grounds of Sa Bassa Plana. The new version of Vi Rei was built with one objective – delivering top-quality wines, made with traditional methods coupled with innovative and advanced winemaking technologies.
Hand-Harvested Grapes Carefully Selected for Production of High Quality Wines
With complete respect of nature, the owner cultivates a broad array of grapes, including Chardonnay, Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc, Prensal Blanc, Giro Ros, and Merlot. The winery is also a house of top-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Manto Negro, and Callet. After a manual harvest, the best bunches are selected and moved to the cellar to produce delicious red and white wines, in combination with rich-quality rosé and sparkling wines.
