THE ROUTE OF THE WINERIES

The cultivation of the vine was, during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, one of the mainstays of the Bages’ economy. As a witness to this past perpetuates a set of barracks and wineries that are integrated into the current landscape.

The winery was an essential tool in the wine exploitation. In the process of winemaking is used as a container so that the must fermentation occurs. The particular conditions of the terrain posed a solution with regard to the transport of the grape. This is the main reason that explains the unique resource to lift the press in the middle of the vineyards. It is a unusual, unique construction in Catalonia.

They are found in the towns of Mura, El Pont de Vilomara i Rocafort and Talamanca. The vines were planted in places accessible to all cars and, in many cases, to the animals, in the foothills of the mountains on dry stone terraces. From the farmhouse, we recommend visiting “Les Tines Vall del Flequer”. Near kilometer 4 of the BV-1224 road from El Pont de Vilomara to Rocafort indicating the deviation to Les Tines.
