Wine has always been made in this house, even before the winery was founded. The wine press dates back to this period having been recently purchased and bears witness to this fact.


Rafel Solé Pubill, founder of the winery, with his wife, Concepción Albesa Giné. Despite the difficulties of the time (Spanish Civil War and its aftermath), they worked hard to lay the foundations for this family winery which is still going strong today.


Josep Solé Albesa, Rafel’s son, blesses the first tractor during the festivities of Saint Christopher in the main square of Batea. Machines quickly became part of rural life to help speed up and make easier the chores in the vineyard.


Josep Solé Albesa takes over the reins of the winery. Expert in oenology and passionate about his work, he starts to make a generational difference as well as in the winemaking techniques.


The winery becomes part of the Terra Alta Designation of Origin (wine appellation). This marks a turning point in terms of the family business.


With a clear vision for the future, Josep Solé Albesa decides to take on a new direction at the winery and starts a project to bottle the wines and improve quality. After his death in 1993, Mercè Llop Galcerà, sheds new light on the project and the first bottle is released: Mas Tarroné.


The wine, Torremadrina, is released, the first aged wine made at the winery, which is made with grapes from the vineyard plot of the same name.


We create Merian. It is a 100% Garnatxa Blanca, which pays homage not only to this indigenous grape variety, but also to Mercè and Antonio who continue the project. In fact, the name recognises their legacy and the name takes the initials from the beginning of their names: MER and AN.


New vineyards are purchased which allow the winery to be more and more independent and have a series of vineyards from which to choose their grapes depending on the style and winemaking techniques of the wine.


A thorough re-modelling of the winery takes place and new machinery is acquired to be ready for future challenges. Striving for quality in the wines, means that infrastructures and processes must be modernised.


The new range of wines is released, Punt I(Full Stop and)… Seguit (new sentence) and A part (new line). The winery starts working on a new concept of wine and a more up-dated image which is representative of the fourth generaton. A new wise lady is now at the winery.


The current team at Cellers Tarroné, the family and workers, who are eagerly looking to the future.
