CELLER TARRONÉ            DO TERRA ALTA

 

 

 

Cellers Tarroné was born in Batea, a small village situated in the south of Catalonia in 1942. His founder was Rafael Solé Pubill who lived in the countryside with his family and worked as a farmer. His job was his passion and vineyards were what he loved the best. For that reason, he decided to create a winery where each and everyone of his wines were 100% from his vineyards. This fact gave a unique and distinguished character to the wines wich fascinated a lot of people in those days.

 

José Solé Albesa, his son, inherited the pasion and the interest of his father. José, with his experience and his effort to improve his father's work, predicted that the bottled wine was the future in the sector.So forty years later, the winery saw his firts wines in a bottle.

 

Step by step, Cellers Tarroné opened up the market and achieved that more than 35% of the production was bottled at our clients’ request.

In 1990, the only founder of the cellar, Rafael, died and three years later his son, José, died too. This situation obliged Mercedes Llop Galcerà, José’s wife, to take charge in the family business together with Antonio Melich Domènech, the person responsible for the cellar since 1980.

 

This hard blow brought about that the work and the effort of the two founders, the father and his son, were emphasized in the wines even more. That made that the cellar, which until the date had only bottled young wines, started to bottle aging wines. Nowadays, these wines have a wonderful fame in national and international level.

 

Torremadrina was the first bottled aging wine. This wine gives off a unique character and history since his name and the grapes used to make this wine come from the place where the cellar was born.

Today, the family continues working in order to offer our clients wines with excellent quality and unique character.

Deep Bigarreau cherry red in colour. Intense, elegant and balanced aromas with soft hints of toast and vanilla on a spicy background with some herbs. In the mouth, it is concentrated, warm and plea- sant. Excellent structure and rounded tannins lead to a long finish, giving rise to notes of liquorice combined with hints of camphor. Very slowly, the fruit starts to appear, especially ripe fruit which give this wine a sweeter sensation, with a long and lingering finish and a general feeling of balance and complexity. It is a very honest wine.
