4 Kilos Vinícola, Vino de la tierra de Mallorca

Mallorcan native, Francesc Grimalt and Barcelona boy Sergio Caballero are the owners of the 4 Kilos project. The business name, Apol.Lonia Viticultors, is named for Francesc's mother, but the name under which they travel, 4 Kilos, is rather more fun. A Kilo is old Spanish slang for a million pesetas (in today's money about 6,000 Euros). Francesc and Sergio started the business by chipping in 2 Kilos each, for 4 Kilos in total. This makes for a shoe-string budget operation entirely compatible with The Spanish Acquisition. But we're a perfect fit in many other ways too ...

Four Kilos are responsible for 3 wines of their own, and are also instrumental in Gallinas i Foques, which is made for the Amadip Esment Association, who look after local youth with mental health issues. Four Kilos first came to market with the 2006 vintage of 4K itself. 12 Volts commenced with the 2007 vintage, Grimalt-Caballero's first vintage is 2010 and Gallinas e Foques started with 2009.
