Bodegas Ribas

The island wines from Mallorca have been blessed for years with high quality and Mediterranean charm. Along with Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is above all the indigenous varieties such as Mantonegro, Gargollassa, Callet and Prensal blanc, that make Mallorca a true “treasure island”. Grapes that exist only here reflect the unmistakable character of this unique wine island. 

The Ribas winery in Consell has been preserving these Mallorcan treasures for more than 300 years. It is the oldest winery on the island, and it features a stately mansion from the 18th century. The first vines were planted by Pedro Ribas in 1711. There are now 40 hectares, located approximately 150 metres above sea level, on sandy, calcareous and sometimes very stony soils, which are farmed with certified organic methods.

It is run by the siblings Xavier and Araceli Ribas under the watchful eye of their mother, María Antonia Oliver. Araceli learned her trade from Bob Levi at the world-famous Harlan estate in Napa Valley and from René Barbier, one of the great pioneers of the Priorat, while Xavier gained experience in France and New Zealand.  

Ribas strongly promotes the indigenous grape Mantonegro and is working on its improvement through selection. It is not easy to tame. The maturity is not uniform, the harvest taking consequently a great deal of time. The oldest vines are over 80 years old. Thanks to strict yield regulation, the Mantonegro produces a full-fledged, elegant wine. In the assemblage with varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, exceptional blends with structure and character are produced.

Weingut Nicolussi-Leck

Weingut Nicolussi-Leck

The Kreithof, as the ancestral estate is known, is located near the idyllic Lake Caldaro in South Tyrol (Alto Adige) and has been cultivated by the Nicolussi-Leck family since 1915. Standing guard over it are the medieval ruins of Leuchtenburg Castle, which – like the estate – dates back to the 13th century and was presumably also associated with nearby Laimburg Castle in the Etsch Valley.

Roland und Karin Lenz

In 1994, while Roland Lenz was still studying oenology, he and his wife Karin were able to acquire eight hectares of vines on the Iselisberg. It was a unique opportunity that they seized, even though they were toying with the idea of setting up their own business abroad, far from Switzerland. They actually did so later, but that's another story…
