There are records of the Rosells and the Bohers coming from the Rosell Villa of Vinaroz, in the region of Ampurdán, in the province of Gerona, Spain dating from the 10th century. It is also known, that due to troop raids of Almanzor in the year 985, they had been forced to leave the village.
Although the Arab conquest lasted almost eight centuries, in the North and in the Pyrenees, freedom took place, around the 1,200’s, as a consequence of the treaty with the kingdom of Aragón.
For various centuries, random news about the wine activity of the Rosells and the Bohers in Catalunya have been traced. In 1897, the marriage between Don Pedro Rosell & Mir and Doña Rita Boher & Carabassa, a family with a long tradition in winemaking, travelled to Mendoza leaving San Salvador de Toló.
Fifteen years earlier, in 1882, Encarnación Rosell Boher, daughter of Don Pedro and Doña Rita, was born in Spain. Once the family was established in Mendoza, she married Bernando Martínez in 1899. The following year, in 1900, they both set up the winery, where Cavas Rosell Boher is now located. Alejandro Martínez Rosell is the direct descendant of this family line and heir to the estate.
Along with another great master in oenology, Cazenave, they invented and designed instruments and devices that have been later used in the winemaking industry. Moreover, Don Bernardo Martínez has successfully held this wine business leaving to his son the legacy of his expertise.
