The Talvin White
The Talvin White
"Unusual for a Mallorcan white wine, the Talvin White is invigorating and fresh with its aromas of bright fruits."Nicola de Waal, Finca Ses Talaioles
First prehistoric settlers on the grounds of Ses Talaioles were the so called “Talajotes”. Their culture is not yet fully explored but what we know is, that they were genius slingshooters when fighting as so-called “Fons Balears” in the Punic wars against the Romans. Later the Romans took advantage of their exceptional fighting technique in various wars and began to settle in Majorca. They brought their highly developed culture to the island and as a main asset they transmitted the know how of growing grapes and producing wine and the wonderful culture of enjoying it. We might call this an early successful migration project which still gives us joy and satisfaction.
