Font de la Canya activity

17 October, 2018

On the 12th, 13th and 14th of October the archaeological conferences were held in Font de la Canya (Avinyonet). A journey back in time that allowed about twenty collaborators and their families to learn about the birthplace of viticulture in the Penedès region.

Archaeological excavations have identified evidence related to the beginnings of vineyards and wine in the region dating back to the 7th century BC, and are associated with commercial exchanges with the Phoenician culture.

The collaborators had the opportunity to work together alongside the team of archaeologists and to document the pieces discovered.
The little ones enjoyed the activities organized for them, such as the puppet workshop, stories, painting, etc.

From the Torres Family Foundation we support the Arqueovitis team in its work and especially the project to recover the grape seeds giving evidence of the first clues of pressed grapes in our territory.
