Three generations of passion for wine

The young pioneer José Luis Ferrer, grandfather of the current co-owner of this wine estate, José Luis Roses Ferrer, founded the estate in 1931. He was a young and dynamic 22 year old at the time who felt a genuine passion for wine and a strong determination to make his vineyards a success. The Spanish civil war broke out in 1936 and instead of giving in to the difficulties this caused his business he used the opportunity to make the first Mallorcan vintage wine, a wine that had been aged and that would last longer, and so be easier to keep.

The wines, originally named 'Franja Roja', became better known in the 1940s and the sparse 12 hectares which the estate had started with slowly grew bigger and bigger. José Luis Ferrer's grandsons became involved in the vineyards in 1982 and the facilities have not stopped growing and improving since. They are now the proud owners of 92 hectares of vineyards and this modern, state-of-the-art wine cellar which can be visited today. The José L Ferrer wine estate is currently the biggest on the island. Since the third generation of the family became involved in the estate the range of wines produced has extended to include more white wines, as well as rosés and spumants. The winery now offers four different ranges; the most classic range is José L. Ferrer which is a direct descendant of the original wines produced, the Veritas range is designed for the more modern palate, the Dues range combines two varieties of grape (one native and one foreign variety) to create an innovative and different taste, and finally the Special Edition range.

The current director of the estate, José Luis Roses Ferrer, along with his son Pepe Roses, has no less passion than his grandfather when it comes to the world of wine. He told us that he delights in the fact that wines still depend on the most natural and traditional of processes, a vine still needs to grow for six or seven years before it can be used for the production of wine and 'no two vines are the same'. His passion is reflected in the care given to the production of every bottle at José L Ferrer, and in the public recognition given to the estate in the form of a number of prestigious prizes
