The bodega and vineyards of Heretat MontRubì 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 Heretat MontRubì

The name Heretat MontRubí was created in 1984 in honor of the 19th century property in L’Avellà that the Peris family refurbished to house the winery. “Heretat” is Catalan word for an inherited estate were wine an olive oil where tipically made. “Mont” relates to the mountainous surroundings and distinctive method of viticulture, while “Rubí” was taken from the name of the municipality of FontRubì, 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 ends between the towns of Guardiola and Font Rubì, in the heart of the Alt Penedès, tradition meets innovation at Heretat MontRubì
