4Kilos

Mallorca

4Kilos was set up in 2006 by former Anima Negra winemaker Francesc Grimalt (known for his efforts in rescuing the Callet variety) and musician Sergio Caballero (who is also founding partner and director of the Sonar music festival), 4Kilos’ first vintage was vinified in a milk refrigeration unit. Today they use grapes from north and south of Mallorca— some international varieties as well as local ones such as Mantonegro and Fogoneu - and vinify them in a converted sheep farm, using a combination of stainless steel and open top oak fermenters. They are committed not only to native varieties, but also to finding the right combination of strain, soil, and climate for each wine. The name 4Kilos comes from their initial investment of 4 million pesetas, which so far looks like money well spent.
