History

“Son Vich de Superna” is a possession of the municipality of Puigpunyent, located in the valley of Superna, between Son Noguera, Sa Campaneta, Son Balaguer and the villages of Banyalbufar and Esporles.

During the reorganization and distribution of territories of King Jaime I, “El Conquistador”, the lands of Son Vich were ceded to Ludovico de Vich, located in the Superna Valley. In 1578 it belonged to Mr. Francesc Vic – of Superna-, of the family of which they took the name. It was dedicated to olive groves, vineyards and the cultivation of cereals. It also had an orchard dedicated to apple trees, fruit trees and vegetables. Next to the torrent, it had a water mill, flour mill, called the mill of “Son Vich de Superna”, with its own houses and lands. In 1707 it belonged to the presbyter Pere Antoni Vic Garriga, who benefited “La Seu de Mallorca”. It was rented jointly with the Obacs, with whom they confronted. They had houses and were dedicated to olive trees and cereal crops. It had extensive holm oaks. In 1787, Jeroni de Berard described it as an average possession, with orchard and water mill, owned by Mr. Antoni Vic. The houses of Son Vich, since its construction underwent several remodeling until the nineteenth century, a structure that we can enjoy today.

It is an estate crossed by the torrent of Superna, 300 hectares of land divided between 3 mountains and the valley, of which 8.5 are planted with vineyards.

In 2007, Mr. Gabriel Sampol, businessman and owner of the estate, was clear that “Son Vich de Superna” was the ideal place to produce a wine with quality grapes, a high altitude wine. And he got down to work. The optimal meteorological and climatological qualities of the terrain encouraged Sampol to sow “ull de llebre” or tempranillo, a variety that does not adapt to the rest of Mallorca, but is ideal for the “Son Vich de Superna” estate due to its humidity, height and the temperature that prevails there during the ripening process. Native vines such as “Manto Negro”, Callet, Cabernet Sauvignon in red grapes and Viognier in white grapes were also planted.
