IBERIAN ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE OF THE 3RD C. BC, CRADLE OF VINE GROWING AND WINE PRODUCTION IN THE NORTH OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA

< volver

Right next to Can Fontanals, the Iberian archaeological site “Font de la Canya” has been excavated. This settlement is considered to be the oldest settlement found to date in the North-East of the Iberian Peninsula in which there is evidence of wine making and consumption dating back to 3rd century BC. On the site they found numerous archaeological carbonised vitis vinifera seeds, ceramic Phoenician import material, and other elements linked to the cultivation of vineyards. We are proud to say that the first vines documented in the North of the Peninsula may have been our vineyards.
