This is a splendid example of the agricultural landscape of Porreres. Goblet-trained vines overlooked by immense galta rotja (“red cheek”) apricot trees grown directly from seeds.

It was with vines like these that my great-grandfather started work over 75 years ago. It is the vineyard of our origins, that marks out the path we are travelling.
