Discovered by Lluís Galera in 1966, the archaeological site was opened to the public in 2009 with funding from the ERDF, the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Diputació de Barcelona, and the sponsorship of Acesa Abertis, Caixa Laietana and Alella Winery.
The Roman winery of Vallmora was a center of wine production in Roman Laietania with documented activity between the 1st century BC and 5th century AD.
Twenty-two centuries later, the equipment allows us to understand what the cultivation, production and marketing of Laietà wine was like in Roman times. The site includes a testimonial vineyard and an experimental vineyard, and contains the country’s only two reconstructions of wine presses as they were 2000 years ago.
In addition, there are remains of pressing rooms (torcularia), must tanks (laci) and semi-underground ceramic vats (dolia defossa) for the fermentation and aging of wine. In addition, among the various finds, the lead signaculum is preserved with the name of the person in charge of the winery in the second century AD: “Epictec, slave of Luci Pedani Clement”.
