Abadal was founded in 1983 by Valentí Roqueta in Santa Maria d’Horta d’Avinyó, on land near the family home, Roqueta farmhouse, with more than 9 centuries of history and with a long tradition in the cultivation of the vine.
Abadal was born with the commitment to express with his wines the singularity of a land. It is the commitment to a territory, as a way of differentiation and identity. The fusion of classic knowledge and the openness to concepts from the new wine world defines the Abadal style.
The Bages has always been a land of wines. The ancient settlers wanted to baptize the place with a name that paid tribute to Bacus, the Roman god of wine. They had understood that it was a landscape especially suitable for the cultivation of the vine. After the first settlers, as well as Greeks and Romans, a valiant tradition worked these lands regularly until in 1892, the phylloxera ruined them in their totality. The Denomination was constituted in 1995 and counts today with about 600 hectares dedicated to the cultivation of the vine.
