Lying just 60 kilometers west of Barcelona, MontRubí is at home in the wine region of Penedès, steeped in hundreds of years of tradition.
The bodega and vineyards of MontRubí stand at over 2,000 feet above the sea, in the Catalan PreCoastal Range.
Here the land gives way to ancient forests of Mediterranean Pine, redolent with the scents of wild herbs and alive with the sounds of wild boar and hare scampering through the undergrowth and the calls from Bonelli’s Eagle high above.
The name MontRubí was created in 1984 in honor of the 19th century property in L’Avellà that the Peris family refurbished to house the winery. “Mont” relates to the mountainous surroundings and distinctive method of viticulture, while “Rubí” was taken from the name of the municipality of Font-Rubí where the winery and vineyards are located.¶ When arriving at the gates of the estate in L’Avellà it seems it is precisely here that the road endsbetween the towns of Guardiola and Font-Rubí, in the heart of the Alt Penedès, tradition meets innovation at MontRubí.
