Best of Mallorca | 2018 Text: Renate Pentzien
The two brothers run the best example of an authentic farm with cows, horses, pigs and chicken. And with their own wine fields. Their fabulous wine creations have not only rewarded Xavier and Carlos Feliu with many good friends, but also with several prizes. Ca’n Feliu has been the first and only cellar with the Demeter label for pure and biodynamic production.
Xavier is happy to see that his guests move freely around the finca with the adjacent countryside hotel. They can experience the birth of a foal, pick their own oranges, figs or artichokes, enjoy a trip with the bicycles or choose some of the Ca’n Feliu wines at the chill out area: “We want our guests to leave our grounds with happiness. They shall keep us in good memory, so that they feel the desire to come back. We don’t organize any tours, this is the real country life with all the authentic pleasures that come with it. A good wine with a traditional dish, then trying another one with another speciality from our finca – enjoying the tranquility of the landscape. True pleasure results in happiness“, he knows from the people who visit his family finca.
The key to happiness
Carlos shares his philosophy: “All of us want to touch the sky, to be as successful as possible. And once you reach that, you want to keep your feet on the ground. It’s about friendship, maybe a BBQ together, an authentic life is the key.“
Good wine for good people
To be able to share their knowledge about winemaking with nice people, Ca’n Feliu offers Tu Crianza: anyone can be the designer of his own wine, choose the barrel and the grapes for his personally designed wine, even the labels. Carlos: “Our first and best clients were German. They came in 2003 when we just started, and bought two barrels of wine. I was so thankful, but one of them said: If you really made this wine, then I am sure I just made a wonderful deal. They still are our costumers, actually we sell the majority of our wine to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. But we welcome all wine lovers to Ca’n Feliu.“
