Long fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures of approx. 14ºC for about 40 days to retain the subtle varietal aromas.

  • Rosé Wine

    Ribas Rosat

    The study of Mantonegro and its behaviour according to the age of the vines has allowed us to select the most suitable plants for the production of this wine. We aim for fresh fruit and moderate alcohol content, for which we chose younger vines planted in deeper soils.
    A delicate treatment of the grapes and the direct pressing of whole bunches allow us to obtain a fine wine with subtle fresh aromas and a refreshing taste.

  • Red Wine

    Ribas Negre

Followed by a 12-month aging in barrels of second, third and fourth year.

  • White Wine aged in barrel

    Sió Blanc

    White wine well suited for laying down made from our old vines of Prensal with Giró ros and Viognier aged on barrel. We are looking for length and complexity. The Prensal variety stands out for its finesse in the nose when the vines are young, but only the older vines will bring the structure and length required by the wine to age well. Besides the age of the vines, the vineyard management is also fundamental. It is important to limit the production, to make a strict control over the maturity of the fruit to avoid overripeness and to keep the right acidity that will allow a long aging in the barrel and in the bottles.

    Year : 2022

    Grape varieties : 35% Prensal Blanc, 30% Giró Ros, 35% Viognier

    Alcohol strength : 13,5%

    Years of life : 4-5

  • Vino Rosado

    Sió Rosat

    In the midst of the rosé revolution, which is becoming increasingly more complex, we are seeking to produce a gastronomic wine that shows the uniqueness of the ancestral Mallorcan variety Gargollassa.
    This wine is the result of more than a decade of experimentation and a lot of effort to recover a local variety, which inexplicably was on the verge of extinction.
    Ancient documents, including the famous collection of Archduke Ludwig Salvator, describe it as one of the most recommended varieties for the production of quality wines in Mallorca.
    The last year in which the Gargollassa appears in the inventory of authorised varieties was 1979, shortly after which it disappeared from the wine-growing scene, probably due to its low yield and therefore, little interest in planting it. Years later, at the end of the 1990s, when the main attraction of a variety was the quality of the wine produced and not the quantity of grapes, the recovery of Gargollassa created a great deal of expectation and a search was made for plants that may have been left on unclassified estates. In 1998, Bodega Ribas managed to locate the only 3 remaining specimens on the island, and after years of experimentation and multiplication, presented this variety of singular character with great individual potential. This pre-phylloxera variety, descendant of the Heben and Monastrell varieties, has come to remind many of a Pinot Noir due to its delicate and elegant nuances.

    Year : 2022

    Grape varieties : 100% Gargollassa

    Palate

    The attack is refreshing, tense, with a marked floral and saline character.

    Pairing Suggestions

    Ideal with “frit de marisc”, crustaceans, salads, white meats and rice dishes.


    Elaboration

    The grapes are harvested by hand from our own vineyards. Subsequent passage of the grapes through a selection table where a strict quality control is carried out. Gentle pressing of the bunches at low pressures in a pneumatic press to avoid oxidation. Long fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures of approximately 14ºC for about 40 days to preserve the subtlety of the varietal aromas.

  • Red Wine

    Sió Negre

    This wine made mainly with Mantonegro from old vines was created as a tribute to our grandmother Sió (or Concepció), who supported the modernisation of the winery by her daughters just over 3 decades ago. Our priority is to achieve the balance of the wine from the vineyard. The Mantonegro variety stands out for its great aromatic expressiveness, but it has a tendency to produce excessively warm, oxidative wines with high alcohol content. In Sió, concentration and varietal typicity are sought, but without renouncing freshness, which can only be the result of an adequate management of the old vineyard. The characteristic pebbles that cover the Can Ribas vineyard help to counteract the adverse climatic effects and avoid uneven vintages.

    Year : 2021

    Grape varieties : 60% Mantonegro, 35% Syrah, 5% Gargollassa

The yield is extremely low, with each plant producing no more than half a litre of wine

After spending 24 hours in a cold chamber at 2ºC to prevent oxidation, the grapes are pressed at low pressure, and a rosé juice with high concentration of sugar is obtained. The yield is extremely low, 2 kilos of dried grapes producing a half-liter bottle of wine.

  • Red Wine

    Ribas de Cabrera

    This wine is the result of an exhaustive study of the Mantonegro variety, of its clones and of the specific soil of the Can Ribas vineyard. The aim of such investigation is to be able to show the different sides of the variety depending on the management of the vineyard, which in the case of Ribas de Cabrera appears through aromatic complexity and expression of the terroir, highlighting the sweet appeal of the black fruits specific to the variety and the fresh, balsamic and mineral notes typical of the old vines.

    Representative of the great potential of Mallorca’s oldest Mantonegro vines; Ribas de Cabrera is made only in years of exceptional harvest from a selection of the best vine stocks and clusters.

    Desconfío de la gente que no bebe

    “I don ́t trust anyone who doesn ́t drink” – Humphrey Bogart.
    This phrase said by many, and attributed to Bogart, has been following me for over 20 years, when a journalist used it to title an interview done to my Aunt Joana Oliver (then co-owner along with my mother of Bodega Ribas). The accuracy of this statement was the equivalent of a sentence that left a mark on me and inspired me to try to get rid of any subterfuge that could nurture distrust (if you do not drink it will not be because of a lack of quality).

    Too much time hearing voices having no faith on the quality on the Mantonegro variety, doubting about its capacity to hold a complete and complex wine, particularly when it comes from Mallorca’s oldest vines.

    Thus, after some personal failures and many foreign ones, we are presenting a wine that in our opinion does justice and ennobles our native variety. And, finally it allows the enjoyment of its singularity without any complements to disguise it.

Concentration and varietal typicity are sought without sacrificing freshness, which can only be the result of proper management of the old vineyard.

  • White Wine

    Soma

    The choice of the variety comes from Javier Servera Ribas’ first professional experience with the wine maker Jean Luc Colombo, who introduced him in 2005 the atypical grape variety by then.
    After returning from France, he presented this variety to his aunt, Sioneta Oliver, who suggested making a new single varietal wine and gave the land for the plantation, hence her name appears on the label.
    Viognier has adapted perfectly well to the Mediterranean and to the sandy, chalky soil of the Consell vineyards, which greatly limits its production and allows us to obtain this particular version of Viognier.

    Year : 2022

    This is a tribute to our vineyard manager l’Amo en Joan, who in 2017 turned 90 years old. Joan Colom has dedicated most of his life looking after the Can Ribas vineyards, following the family tradition. The Mantonegro vines that produced this wine were actually planted by him, when he started working at the winery, and the traditional approach evokes the wine making style used a few decades ago, when the spicy notes used to be more dominating in wines.
