The Ribas winery of Consell is the oldest winery of the island and it has been making wine for over 300 years. It is located in one of the listed stately homes from the 18th century that has been preserved intact to date, with its original historic barrel cellar and winemaking warehouse.
A high percentage of the Majorcan grape varieties Mantonegro and Prensal are grown here in accordance with the family tradition. The Bodega Ribas is also known for recovering other native varieties from the island, like Gargollasa, which was practically extinguished, and that now complements the previous varieties.
The more than 40 hectares of vineyards are carefully worked on and harvested by hand, and count on the oldest plantation and the widest diversity of native grape varieties of the island. Ribas is the pioneer in Mallorca for grape selection in the vineyard and hand selection, grape by grape at the winery; in order to guarantee optimum quality in all the wines.
