The vineyards of Bodegas Bordoy occupy land that lies on a sub-soil of marès, a type of rock commonly found in the coastal areas of Llucmajor and Mallorca. Beneath the sandstone rock lie deeper and older strata, with layers of marine sediments with a rich variety of micro flora and fauna. Tiny fossils, skeletons of microscopic creatures or parts of other larger beings that are too small to see, the microfossils. With countless forms and many colours, they are natural wonders that can only be observed under a magnifying glass or microscope.

Sa rota selection line
Rotas or rotes were sections of woodland, hillside or uncultivated land with a surface area of one cuarterada (approximately 7,000 m 2 ) and part of an estate. Documents have been found dating back to the 15 th and 16 th centuries referring to the existence of rotes and roters in the Marina de Llucmajor district. Roters were peasants who tended and cultivated these plots in exchange for giving part of the harvest to the owner of the estate. The Bodegas Bordoy vineyards are found in one of these rotes, which formerly belonged to the Sa Torre estate.
Visible on the wine label is a bird’s eye view of the present-day shape of the plots adjacent to those of the Bodegas Bordoy vineyards.
