Mallorca’s not a bad place to be, especially when it’s summertime and you’re enjoying a glass of red wine with Christian Völkers, CEO and Founder of Engel & Völkers AG.
Mr. Völkers recently hosted a private polo tournament on the island and touted the true internationalism of Engel & Völkers; architects, designers, musicians, business leaders and royalty from around the world visited Mallorca for Mr. Völkers’ special event.
Although Mr. Völkers hosts a summer polo event on his Mallorcan estate every year, this year’s tournament was held on a smaller scale due to extensive renovation work being done on the property.
The polo tournament proved to be a truly cinematic affair, Playing out against a backdrop of Mallorcan vineyards and the Mediterranean Sea, six high-profile polo teams competed against each other with players coming from Argentina, Colombia, Spain, England and Germany.
After a hard day of sporting, guests, Mr. Völkers’ family and his special guests dined and celebrated with an Argentine asado-style dinner and wine grown from the estate’s vineyard.
Plans are already under way for next summer’s Engel & Völkers Polo Cup to return to its usual greatness, as demonstrated in past years.

Not a bad way to celebrate the summer.
