Visit the historic cemetery cellar can become an extrasensory experience. Called Catacombs, this is a bleak and inhospitable space that gives way to a series of dark tunnels full of mold, in which thousands of bottles lie with unsuspected ages. So mysterious is this particular cemetery that older bottles are protected by a fence of iron mold completely covered. The key that opened it was thrown into the river in a symbolic act more than 30 years ago and has never reopened.
In 2008 a renovation of the oldest part of the cellar is in charge, giving way to a new dynamic and functional space activities around wine. Stone, wood and iron, in respectful union, frame the nerve center of the cellar space revaluing a centenarian in 2010 won the Best of Wine Tourism Award, International Great Wines Capitals contest that rewards excellence.
