Can Majoral is a small and very distinctive family winery, founded in 1979. The project was started driven by the desire and the conviction that in Mallorca and specifically in Algaida, high quality organic wines could be produced. It was an adventure and an aspiration. Difficult to say if it was meant to be an experiment or a hobby or just entertainment, but the truth is that after the planting started, gradually, this project has been doing great in all aspects without ever losing sight of the main goal: grow, develop and commercialize unique and quality organic wines.
A truly family winery where father Andreu is the pioneer creator and caretaker of the organic vineyards, nephew Andreu Jr. is winemaker and daughter Mireia, is also winemaker and resposible for the winery and commercial activities.
