Six Senses Ibiza Calls for Applications for Ibiza 500 Organic Wine List
An upcoming Six Senses complex aims to create the definitive list of the best organic wines in the world
Ibiza, Spain Six Senses Ibiza has announced that they need help finding the best organic wines in the world. The luxury resort set to open in June 2021 is determined to host this architect and project developer Jonathan Leitersdorf calls “the most important wine list in the world!”
A luxury resort committed to organic is looking for the 500 best organic wines in the world
Six Senses was recently voted the best hotel brand in the world by the readers of Travel + Leisure for the third year in a row! He was honored for his sustainable practices, healthy lifestyle, and uncompromising customer experiences. The company operates 16 resorts and 31 spas worldwide. Six Senses Ibiza Resort plans to take this sustainable commitment to the next level with the Balearic Islands’ first sustainable resort and residential community off the coast of Spain. The resort will include an organic farm and orchard to supply organic produce to on-site restaurants. With this level of commitment to organic, it became clear that the wine list also needed to be 100% organic. They decided not only to create an organic wine list, but also to make it the largest and highest quality organic wine list in the world.
Phillip Anderson DipWSET was chosen to curate the list with the help of a top notch advisory board. Phillip has a background in organic wine and is a student in the Master of Wine degree program. He underlined the difficulty of maintaining this list. “If we just wanted to put together a great wine list with organic wines, we could do it quickly. There are enough great organic wines produced around the world today to fill a typical wine list many times over. For this list, the goal is to have the top 500 certified organic wines in the world and that is a more daunting task. The other hurdle to overcome this year, like many things, is related to the COVID-19 pandemic. “In a normal year, I would travel to wine regions around the world to taste wines. I attended commercial wine tastings for all sorts of wine styles and appellations. This year, none of that is possible. I draw on my notes from previous events and trips and try whatever wines I can. I ask wineries interested in having their wines considered for this program to contact me. I know there are some great organic wines that I have yet to discover and I want to make sure they are included when the Ibiza 500 debuts.” They would also be featured at the Ibiza 500 Wine Festival.
