"The Remelluri estate’s origins date back to the fourteenth century when monks from the Toloño monastery founded a sanctuary and farm at the site. The monks later abandoned the area, but local hermits continued to maintain the shrine there while the Real Divisa, a local community organization, maintained the farms to accommodate the needs of pilgrims who came to pray at the sanctuary. The estate was eventually split up and sold. The modern winery was established in 1967 when Jaime Rodríguez Salis purchased the vineyards at the heart of the former estate. Since then Remelluri has been devoted to recovering the old lands of this historic estate and restoring the original vineyards.

 

Remelluri’s vineyards are located along the slopes of the Sierra de Toloño mountains in the valleys of Valderemelluri, La Granja and Villaescusa. The vineyards here are at the highest elevation in the region, south-facing and protected from the prevailing winds and frost. It is the unique micro-climate of this area that gives the wines of Remelluri their personality.

 

This is the calling card of the estate, representing the bulk of the production. The grapes come from 157 different plots in the three small valleys surrounding the winery.

 

All of the grapes were hand selected in the vineyard. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Aged 20 months in foudres and barrels of various sizes.
