For Pep Cifre, the manager of Can Axartell, it is clear: the heart of this winery is the team. Some have been working together since it was founded in 1997. Although it is spread across Mallorca and Hamburg, the relationships are very close and the exchange is intensive. The Can Axartell core team includes the following members:

Pep Cifre - Winery management

When Pep met the owner of Can Axartell in 1997, he was still working on his doctoral thesis on agricultural engineering. But he was fascinated by the possibilities that Can Axartell offered. From this point on, he combined research and concrete implementation. He directs Can Axartell and is also professor and vice dean at the Faculty of Sciences at the Universitat de les Illes Balears in Palma de Mallorca.

Joan Manuel Ochogavia – Cellar master

During his studies, which he completed as a technical agricultural engineer, Joan Manuel worked at various wineries during semester breaks and during internships and gained practical experience. In 2010 he started working alongside Rosa Pons in the vineyards of Can Axartell. When a new specialist was sought for the position of cellar master in 2012, Joan Manuel was predestined for this job, which he carries out with great care and dedication.

Rosa Pons – External operations management for vineyards and olive groves

Like Pep Cifre, Rosa Pons studied agricultural sciences and received her doctorate in agricultural machinery technology. After several years of teaching at a higher agricultural college and involvement in the agricultural sector, she started working at Can Axartell. Her home is nature, and so she has been actively leading the work in the vineyards and olive groves of Can Axartell since 2003, ensuring that all processes are carried out according to strict ecological principles and that the vines, olive groves and other agricultural areas are well looked after.

Agusti Mascaro – Business Development and Customer Relations

Can Axartell's connection with customers and in particular with the trade and gastronomy of Mallorca and mainland Spain lies in the hands of Agusti. Together with Karl, he also looks after the international market and takes care of many marketing issues.

Karl Heimers – Business Development and Customer Relations

Karl Heimer's homeland is the vineyards in Rheinhessen, where his family runs a winery. But he was interested in economics, where he specialized in marketing and environmental management. Since 2018, Karl has been responsible for customer relationships specifically in German-speaking countries and, together with Agusti, he is responsible for building relationships in other international markets. In parallel to his work, he is currently preparing to obtain his diploma at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).

Sebastiá Crespi – Sales and events

Sebastià has spent his entire life in the hospitality industry. After studying hotel and tourism for four years, he started working as a Maître d'Hotel & Sommelier to work in some of the best restaurants in Mallorca. During this time he specialized in gastronomy and studied organization and events in Barcelona. He later started as a sales manager in the wine industry, where he has worked for the last 14 years.

Maria Angels Bennaser – Administration & Customer Service

With a degree in Business Administration and Management, a Masters in Human Resources and a postgraduate in Business Law, Maria is a woman for all areas of administration at the winery.
