This is the kind of story that people in the wine business love to tell. Three bright, young men from Mallorca decide that the indigenous vines of their famed island are capable of producing far better wine that has been turned out in the past. One is a skilled enologist, one an eloquent salesman and one owns an ancient stone farmhouse. They contract with 135 tiny local vineyards to acquire rights to vines of native grapes that are 50 to 85 years old. These stressed vines are dry-farmed and are not fertilized. The old farmhouse was turned into a winery and they began to hand-produce a trickle of unique and elegant wine. Very soon, they are famous and have more eager customers than bottles of wine.
