4 Kilos Vinícola

Domain: 4 Kilos Vinícola

Located in the south-east of the island of Majorca, 4 Kilos Vinicola domaine is a winery established in 2006 by Sergio Caballero and Francesco Grimalt. The two men started off their business in ad hoc way with a milk tank and some old barrels. Fired by their environmental convictions, they wanted to prove that it was perfectly possible to produce quality grapes without major investment in resources. The gamble paid off. They cultivate their 7 hectares of vines in an idiosyncratic manner and therefore choose to spurn the criteria for the D.O Mallorca appellation in favour of Vino de la Tierra or VT, which corresponds to a PGI, protected geographical indication. Each cuvée reflects its vintage. Their approach conforms to a “vine stock-soil-climate-producer” circle. The domaine boasts a clay and silty sand terroir, rich in ferrous oxide. The winemakers are keen to vinify indigenous grape varieties such as Manto Negro, Fogoneu and Callet. They also cultivate more traditional and international varieties including Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
