Origins. Abiar Alta
Old raisin dryer
Montesanco Teulada is located on a historic estate originally dedicated to making raisins, the
Abiar Alta farm, referring in Arabic to the numerous wells that existed there. The
“Riurau” complex and the old elements that were used to dry the grapes have been
recovered and restored, maintaining the essence of their origins.
The 19th century was the period of greatest splendor for the raisin industry in the Marina Alta, until at the beginning of the 20th century, the phylloxera plague, and later the appearance of more competitive raisin forced growers in the region to replace the vineyards with other crops.
An environment full of history and culture that brings this new project to life; ; integrating in the same space the respect for the history and culture of the
Marina Alta, with the state of the art present of our winery, Montesanco Teulada.
