TRADITION WITH INNOVATION
“At MontRubí we believe in traditional viticulture practiced long ago: sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Simultaneously, we also have committed to innovate our traditions which has led us to incorporate some of the latest technologies.
In line with this philosophy, we use various alternative treatments in the vineyard to produce topquality grapes without chemical residues, even ones that are commonly allowed according to organic farming guidelines. Additionally, we allow natural ground cover to grow, indigenous to the region’s forests, that promote soil regeneration in tandem with microorganisms which they harbor
“In short, we seek balance in the varieties we use and the environment by following biodynamic guidelines which result in an increase in vitality.
In the winery we use sulfites as minimally as possible, aging the wines on the fine lees which are rich in natural antioxidants. All the winemaking processes are manual, from the harvest to the reception at the winery to grape selection, as well as destemming, pressing and pigeage (punch down).
We use a number of different materials for fermentation and aging, including eggshaped cement tanks, ceramic amphora made from locally sourced calciumrich clay as well as French oak barrels of various sizes and toast levels.
