History tells us of the existence of Sa Torre around 1.369, by which time it was already known within the island for its unique gothic style chapel, elevated in the area between Llucmajor and Cap Blanc. Legend has it that the master of the chapel had it built as a blessing after the birth of his first boy. Today the chapel continues to bless the vineyards of Bodegas Bordoy. Founded by Miguel Sastre Bordoy, who after acquiring 1.993 parcels of “Sa Vinya Els Camps” and “S’Aujub Vermell”, he set about restoring the centuries old vines back to their former glory. His expertise, tenacity and vision created the success we see today.
In the words of our winemaker Sergio Navarro:
The climate of this area keeps its peculiarities, we are in the most arid part of the island, with a very low rainfall and intense sunlight that benefits the vines with lower yields but higher quality. The soil is also different, has a sandy loam structure, which makes it is very well drained, besides providing a low fertility, limiting the effect of the plant, resulting in quality. Moreover subsurface composition gives mineral wines character.
