THE BEST WINE IS MADE WITH RESPECT

Modern architecture that blends harmonically with the landscape.
A Mallorcan WINE ESTATE
Careful and considered interaction with nature is important to us. This is seen in the planning and design of our winery. We have built it deep into an old stone quarry. The entire winemaking process is constantly supported by the natural coolness of the rock. Furthermore, the architecture of our winery is based on the gravity principle. The only way the grapes find their way from the vine to the barrel is by gravitational force.
MALLORCA, THE HOME OF OUR WINES
The Can Axartell vineyards are situated in a valley south of Pollença in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains. Amidst olive groves that are a thousand years old wines of a special quality mature in unique climatic conditions. The region´s typical limestone soil gives our grapes their characteristic minerality and finesse. Our wine gets every-thing it needs for perfect development in a natural way. We are passionately commited to produce the highest quality wines. We want to contribute that majorcan wines become highly desired in the international wine scene.

AN UNCOMPROMISING APPROACH MEANS CARRYING OUT ONE’S WORK WITH LOVE
Our focus is on sustainability and uncompromising quality. We place great importance on organic growth methods, careful wine processing and cultivation of old native grape varieties. We work with the greatest care right down to the finest detail. Only hand-picked, mature grapes are used in our wines.
Here our wines come of age. In the depths of our rock-cut cellar, great taste evolves in barrels made of the finest French oak.
AUTOCHTHONOUS GRAPE VARIETIES
OUR CHANCE TO REVIVE ANCIENT MALLORCAN WINES
With love, passion and sustainable methods, we cultivate selected grape varieties that have been native to Mallorca for hundreds of years. Some of these varieties have been overlooked and are rare in viniculture today.
Our aim is to cultivate these native grapes using modern techniques in order to produce wines of highest quality.
For this purpose we are growing:
- Premsal, Giró Ros, Argamussa and Valent Blanc (white grape varieties)
- Callet, Manto Negre, Escursac, Gorgollassa and Giró Negre (red grape varieties)
Giró – One of the autochthonous grape varieties which we take care of with dedication.
THE “MÈTODE GRAVETAT”
THE MOST GENTLE WAY OF WORKING WITH WINE
Our grapes are taken through the entire winemaking process with great care right from the very start. We use the gravity principle, the “Mètode Gravetat”. This elaborate winemaking process begins at the highest point of our bodega. The grapes and must are subject only to the natural force of gravity. Mechanical pumps are not used. Because they are handled by as few machines as possible, the grapes enjoy a treatment that delivers unique results: the finest flavour nuances are revealed, creating unrivalled wines. This method is so important to us that we have emphasised it as a distinctiveness on our labels.
The grape must is not pumped up, but carefully carried to the top and is poured into the fermentation tank.
