The Roman Cellar: Anthropological and ethnological heritage of the regional government, the Junta of Castilla y León

• In the II century -during the Late Empire- the roman emperor Diocletian pursued a policy of territorial unification converting Hispania into a Diocesis Hispaniarum and building a road network referred to as the calzadas romanas (The Vinarius wine cellar is located on a roman road).

• In the XVIII century king Ferdinand VI ordered his minister to conduct a census known as the "Catastro de Ensenada". In 1753, the bodega that is now the Vinarius wine cellar appeared in writing and highlighted for the first time.
