The Roman winery of Vallmora (Teià) was a center of wine production in Roman Laietania with documented activity between the 1st century BC and 5th century AD. Discovered by Lluís Galera in 1966, the current archaeological park was inaugurated in 2009, with funding from the ERDF, the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Diputació de Barcelona, and also with the sponsorship of Acesa Abertis, Caixa Laietana and Alella Vinícola.
The site explains how wine was made in Roman times. It preserves vestiges of the pressing rooms (torcularia), of the must tanks (laci) and of semi-buried ceramic vats (dolia defossa) for the fermentation and aging of the wine. Twenty-two centuries later, the Cella Vinaria archeological park allows us to understand what the cultivation, production and marketing of Laietà wine was like in Roman times. 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”.
The Vallmora Archaeological Park covers an area of about 3,400 m2, which includes a testimonial vineyard and an experimental vineyard, and contains the country’s only two reconstructions of wine presses as they were 2,000 years ago.
