New from Eloi

Whilst summer might not have arrived on our shores, we are happy to make do with some Mallorcan sunshine from Eloi Cedó Perelló of Sistema Vinari.

Originally from Montsant, Eloi’s project started back in 2010 when he began making a string of one-off wines from the vineyards farmed by friends around his native Catalunya. In 2012 he produced the first vintage of his now iconic cuvée, Chateau Paquita. A tribute to his late mother, this arresting blend of Mallorcan varieties was one of those wines that simply stops you in your tracks – a truly unique expression of man, grape and place.

An island of incredible beauty, Mallorca also offers a unique climate for growing grapes. Though it spends most of the year bathed in sunshine, the vineyards benefit from both the breeze of the Mediterranean and the cool, dry winds of the Mistral. The fascinating local varieties are grown over what the locals refer to as Call Vermell – red clay soils which are incredibly rich in iron and lend the wines a distinct minerality.

These wines both come from the 2023 vintage, a year which the famously self-effacing Eloi thinks might be his best yet. Bottled by-the-litre, young and brimming with sunkissed fruit, bitter herbs and sweet sea breeze, they transport you straight to their island home.

Eloi’s wines are now available on Tutto a Casa
