The name "El Sender", meaning "path" was inspired by the path that winds through the vineyards of Mas Gabrielet. The wine is aged for 6 months in oak barrels from Central Europe. El Sender contains a small percentage of the Morenillo variety as part of an experimental project to recover this local grape. The wine has a deep red color with ruby luminosity, has a wide aromatic palette with nuances of black fruit, dry grass and balsamic accents that remind us of the Terra Alta region. It provides a unique balance between volume and freshness, it is refreshing and full in the mouth.
The story of the Roqueta family is the story of a family of winemakers. The beginnings of the winemaking activity date back to the 12th century, namely 1199. The heritage of the winery is closely related to the local history of the Bages region, which is located in the province of Barcelona. Vineyards have been cultivated in Bages since Roman times. According to the oldest preserved documents, in 1199 the wine was already produced on the Masia Roqueta farm, which is located in the town of Santa Maria d'Horta d 'Avinyó. Today, the same farm still has traces of more than eight centuries devoted to wine production, such as presses, stone vats and barrels.
At the end of the 19th century, Ramon Roqueta Torrentó gave the family business a new business dimension. He did so in 1898 when he moved to Manresa, the capital of the Bages region, and founded Ramon Roquet (DO Catalunya), the first of the family's vineyards. Others were founded in 1983 by Abadal Winery (DO Pla de Bages) and in 2007 by Lafou Winery (DO Terra Alta). Today, Roquet Origen is headquartered in Santa Maria d 'Horta d' Avinyó, on the site of a former farmhouse.
