Located in the Garraf Mountains and along the Mediterranean Sea in Sant Pere de Ribes, the property sits on a calcareous mass, with shallow soils containing marine fossils. This terruño of soil and proximity to the sea lends a unique character with great aging potential and minerality to the wines. 

Sumoll planted back in 1939, grown organically and selected from parcels within 10ha of estate vineyards on calcareous sand at 200m in elevation. Hand harvested with 5 days of skin maceration (stems included). Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts happens in very old foudre and amphora for only a few months after harvest before being bottled just as a 1Liter, unfined, unfiltered, with zero SO2.

100% Sumoll

A very bright, fresh, higher acid and chillable light red. Full of personality, slight tart with a herbaceous quality. Medium intensity on the palate with a youthful ripe red fruit. 

Hand Picked | Biodynamic | Unfined | Unfiltered

Alcohol 12%
Size 1000ML 
Pairings It's a great pairing for Mediterranean tapas such as hummus and grape leaves. Also try with dishes such as roasted chicken and stuffed peppers

About the Producer

In 2001, after the death of their father, brothers Manel and Joan Aviñó, returned to the family estate to find a land depleted and unhealthy from years of conventional agriculture. They then started a very ambitious project to return the brilliance of the estate to its original condition. They set about adopting a biodynamic, holistic philosophy that treats the entire estate as whole, living organism. The philosophy here is a return to the way wines were made for generations before modern agriculture (today much of this falls under “biodynamic, back then much of it was conventional wisdom): farming biodynamically, following lunar cycles for planting, pruning, harvesting, and bottling, native yeasts, no additions or enzymes, and no dosage. Their winemaking took a huge turn when Manel’s wife was diagnosed with stomach cancer. She could no longer drink the wines he made until he stopped using sulfur in any of his cuvées. The results are a vibrant, healthy ecosystem filled with wildflowers, herbs, insects and local animals (wild boars help with the pruning).
