Origins

Although over the course of the twentieth century many bodegas in Santa Margalida closed down one after another, the municipality is situated in an area of immense wine and grape-growing tradition. It is even documented that in the seventeenth century Ramon Safortesa Fuster, the famous Comte Mal, rented out part of his land to his knights to plant vineyards and subsequently produce wine. This terrain, known as Rotes dels Cavallers, at present belongs to the Ribot-Galmés family who, after having grown dessert grapes for three generations, in 1997 decided to totally reconvert the land back to the production of red and white wines of superlative quality. This was without doubt a daunting challenge but is one that all members of the family have risen to with dedication and enthusiasm.
