Castell Miquel is a beautiful wine estate in Alaró, Mallorca, which produces wines that are unique, both in their flavour and in their health properties.
The Es Castellet finca was bought by the owner, Dr Popp in 1998, where he decided to created terraces to house the vineyards and included modern winery installations at the ancient Mallorcan estate.
Castell Miquel also owns vineyards in Binissalem and Porreres and by mixing the grapes produced there with the grapes grown on the terraces in Alaró they are able to produce wines which are very sophisticated and unique in bot flavor and taste. The different type and quality of the land at these three locations provides a rich variety of grapes which is quite rare amongst Mallorca's wineries.
Castell Miquel wines are made using only natural ingredients and that the healthy benefits of the grapes are accentuated in the wines to ensure beneficial qualities.Thomas Wambsganns is the wine maker at Castell Miquel believes in working with the weather and climate of each year and producing wines which literally 'taste' of the year in which they were produced.
The Castell Miquel terraces create a rich micro-climate which is ideal for the vines and which welcomes insects and organisms which naturally enrich the soil. The location of the vineyards in Alaró also means that harvesting the grapes is very hard work; it all has to be done by hand, as the conditions will not allow for any machinery.
The result is wines which are very smooth and natural.
