Celler del Roure have become the pioneer of quality wine in Valencia.
Owner Pablo Calatayud is committed to nurturing and championing the indigenous varieties of the region, most notably the Mando and Verdil grapes, both of which have been on the edge of extinction.

Integrated plantings of vines over 10 hectares with both trellis and bush plantations. Macabeo and Pedro Ximenez grown on clay-loam soils/ Verdil and Chardonnay grown on sandy-loam soils.
Total destemming of the grapes that are then left to macerate on their skins for a select amount of time for each variety. Natural cold fining with minimal sulphur added to the wine. Aged from 6 months in clay amphorae.
No oak ageing
Aged in Tinijas shows the fresh and complex flavours of this wine. Ripe tangerines from the Verdil, sweet spice from the PX, balanced with fresh and mouth watering citrus, melon and a touch of biscuit from the Chardonnay and Macabeo. Finishing with a rich and creamy mouth feel that makes this wine a true show case of its style.
Pair with roast chicken, creamy potato dishes, or relax with some tapas
