Mont Rubí was a dream that became a reality for Peris family in 1984. That was when they purchased and began refurbishing their 19th century estate in the small town of L'Avellá located in the Alt Penedés region, just an hour and a half outside of the Catalan capital of Barcelona.
While Penedès is internationally recognized for making the best sparkling wines of the Iberian Peninsula, the goal for Mont Rubí was to create still wines from indigenous and oft overlooked varieties of unparalleled quality. By marrying tradition with innovation, winemaker Josep Queralt has lifted grapes such as the delicate red Sumoll, the racy white Xarel·lo and rounded, yet mineral white Parellada to stardom. Together with the more common varieties of Garnatxa and Samsó, Mont Rubí has continued making truly inspiration wines, indicative of the unique terroir of the Alt Penedès, for more than 30 years.
