Almost three centuries later, in 1998, the present-day wine-making project was started, thanks to the efforts of members belonging to the A.S.T.

Its aim was to produce a high quality wine, combining the best tradition and the newest technologies to achieve a unique result in the region. The winery and vineyard is called "Heretat de Cesilia" in memory of the former name of the present farm which is of Valencian origin.
