Exterior of the original farm of the Hieronymite monks from the Monte Toloño Monastery (15th century), High Middle Age Nechropolis from the 11th century, traditional wine press for grape stomping, white grape variety vineyards, and traditional Tempranillo bush vines.
The tour begins in the winery court, with the Fuente de la Calabaza, a fountain, which pours water from Monte Toloño ground water table. Once you exit the court, you take the first path to the right, surrounding the stonewall of the Remelluri farmhouse garden. You walk by the original building façade, built in the 15th Century by the Hieronymite monks who guarded the Monastery on top of Monte Toloño. You keep walking towards the south on the same path, surrounded by Tempranillo bush vines to the left, and Garnacha vines to the right. Once the path starts to go slightly up the hill, to the right you'll see a trail with a sign leading to the San Cristobal wine press. You have to keep walking towards the west some 200m further until the end of the trail. To the right you can see a terrace with white grape varieties such as Chardonnay and native Moscatel, all on trellises. Just opposite, you can see the vineyard valley of Valderemelluri, with traditional plots in terraces. Taking a path surrounded by bushes that turns towards the south, 50m further you can visit the sandstone ballast for wine stomping in the traditional wine press.
To go back to the farm, you take the same path in the opposite direction, following the path between other native vineyards and small forests. At one point you’ll find yourself in the 10th Century Santa Eulalia High Middle Age Nechropolis. From there, any of the paths between the vineyards will lead you back to the winery.
11th Century Chapel, traditional viticulture shed, 11th Century Nechropolis and traditional Tempranillo bush vines.
The tour begins in the winery court. This is where la Fuente de la Calabaza is located, a fountain whose drinkable waters stem from ground waters from Monte Toloño. From there, you take the path that leads to the chapel, through a corridor of native bushes, olive trees and old fruit trees. Inside this 11th Century chapel, you’ll be able to enjoy Vicente Ameztoy’s paintings. From there, you take the same path surrounded of vineyards towards the south, all the way to a little shed made of two-slope sandstone; one of the multiple viticulturist sheds in the area. Around the shed, you can see Tempranillo bush vineyards, worked using 100% traditional agriculture methods. You keep walking towards the southeast until you arrive in the High Middle Age Nechropolis, called Tumbas de Santa Eulalia. There you can find 300 antropomorphic burials carved in the rock, where they buried Christian settlers who lived in the Remelluri Valley during the 10th and 11th Century.
Traditional farm-house, honeycombs, white grape variety altitude vineyards, Ribas de Tereso hamlet, with 17th Century fountain and church, Villaescusa Valley, with vineyards previous to phylloxera (end of 19th Century), High Middle Age chapel, with saints painted by Vicente Ameztoy.
The walk begins at the winery court, by the fountain that pours water from Monte Toloño spring. From the court, you take the path to the left, which runs along the winery buildings. Some 200m to the right you find a masonry cut stone house with a two-slope roof. It is a good example of the typical farmhouse, where a family and their animals lived for several centuries. You keep going up, close to the hillside, and you'll see the Remelluri honeycombs. You walk to the top, where you take a path to the right surrounded by conifers. You keep along this trail to Monte Toloño, towards the northeast. Once on the top point of the trail, you'll see at both sides some Remelluri vineyards with white grape varieties, such as Viognier, Roussane and Marssane, brought from friends' vineyards at the French Rhône Valley. At this point the path starts to drop all the way to Ribas del Tereso hamlet. There you can drink water from the village fountain and see the exterior of the 17th Century church, built with native sandstone. To go back to Remelluri you exit the small village towards Labastida (south) along the blacktop road. Some 300m further, you take a dirt road surrounded by vineyards to the right, which takes you back to the winery. At this point of the road, to the right, you can see some vineyard terraces on the hillside, including some very interesting vines from the times previous to the phylloxera. At the end of the dirt road, you find the 10th Century chapel, containing Mozarabic paintings by Vicente Ameztoy. The walk ends at the winery’s main court.
