The Vineyards

Vineyards Galilea by Fiona
The stairs to the Gods

It all started in 1960 when Roland Fischer was only 23 years old. He decided to starting to import wines from around the world, he was the first to bring export Bordeaux & Bourgogne wine before opening up to Vega social, Gaja and so many others, then in the new world with Hamilton Russel, James Halliday ASO...With time he became one of the best wine taster of the world.  In 1990 He went to the Priorat Region for the first time and he met René Barbier from Clos Mogador, he was there since the beggining. In 1998 René Barbier presented him with his new project Celler Laurona, with this project he desired to show the diversity of the different Terroirs and grape varieties coming from old vineyard. It as a tremendous hit, by the first vintages Wine Spectator put on it's 100 Most Competitive Wine World Wide. It has since always reached like all our wine about 90Points (R.P. & Cie). 

After Roland sold his importing company, they lost touch....

13 years later... Roland daughter Fiona Fischer had develop a passion for traveling, discovering different foods and spices from around the world and a passion for world wines. One night having dinner together, they were both discussion and the idea flowered, until 6 months later Fiona and René had met a hit it off by creating a 100%Grenache, called Pythagora. Fiona founded Galilea and by the second year already producing an other wine the Nautilea. In 2016, Roland Fischer & Fiona took over the Celler Laurona winery. And have been since working together to bring these two projects together with René Barbier, and the story continues... With Love and Passion
