The winery is located near the municipality of Alaró on the Balearic island of Mallorca, high up in the Tramuntana mountains. The name is derived from the owner's first name (Spanish spelling for "Michael"). It is owned by the German family-owned company Bionorica (the world's leading manufacturer of herbal medicines) in Neumarkt, Upper Palatinate. Today, the company is run by Prof. Dr. Michael A. Popp, the third generation of the family. He explains the objective of the new wine business: "Our goal is to produce wine that is an international leader in both its sensual and health-promoting dimensions." The purchase in 1998 of the "Es Castellet" estate, which was in danger of falling into disrepair, laid the foundation for high-quality wines. Major investments were made in vineyards, vines, modern technology and production/bottling facilities. Núria Tuduri is the oenologist in charge.
