The 150 hectares of Granja Remelluri (Remelluri Estate) and its surrounds are of exceptional historical and artistic value. They include a necropolis of more than 300 burial sites from the population of Remelluri from the early Middle Ages.
Many parts of the property bear names from the Mozarabic book of saints, originating undoubtedly from small hermitical settlements found on the estate.
In the winery’s museum there is a ‘hilarri’, or stele, with a fascinating depiction of an anthropomorphous figure apparently dating back to the Bronze Age. On a crag on the side of Toloño, very close to the border of the vineyard, Remelluri has made a number of archaeological digs, unearthing a Roman settlement and several skeletons.
