Mesquida Mora is a young project, which starts from the need of the winemaker Bárbara Mesquida to continue making wine. Barbara comes from a wine cellar family (her father founded the Jaume Mesquida winery) and from a young age she had a close relationship with wine.

As part of his personal project, he initially had the help of his brother Jaume and currently makes his way solo. The name chosen for the winery corresponds to its two surnames and symbolizes the family inheritance. He did not seek a modern name without tradition, since the surnames are linked to the world of wine and each one represents metaphorically yin and yan, duality and complementarity of everything. The small cellar is located at the exit of Porreres, the family village, and as Barbara herself likes to call it, it is an emergency cellar. In May 2012 saw the need to have its own site to make wine, and with a family plot, laid the foundation of what would be his second home. It is a very functional and practical wine cellar, designed by Barbara herself and her husband.

The vineyard is composed of family vineyards of Callet, one of the indigenous varieties of the island, with more than 50 years of age. But also with foreign varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Suvignon and Pinot Noir, is that the Mesquida family was one of the first to plant these varieties in Mallorca. Of the 20 hectares with which it works, 15 of them are in full production and 5 hectares correspond to a small experimental vineyard.
