Apart from being lovely wines, the Celler del Roure story is one of a return to history
Celler del roure was born in 1996 as a small family winery, that wanted to improve by learning from their ancestors. In 2009, they began to research the possible use for aging of the buried clay jars that remained “asleep” in their “fonda cellar”, an underground gallery excavated more than three hundred years ago that houses 97 jars of capacities included between 600 and 2,800 liters. Abandoned in the dark days of the 1930s, they are busy renovating this special cellar and its amphorae. Of the 97 ancient jars, 20 have been dug out, renovated and re-buried.
