Joan Rubió - Tiques
“Wine levitates, raises our spirit and inspires us.” Joan Rubió
My name is Joan Rubió and I am a winemaker,
born in El Penedès, at the Masia* Cal Tiques
I tend our family-owned estate located in Cal Rubio in Santa Margarida i els Monjos.
In our family we have always grown the Xarel·lo and Macabeu varieties and I’ve heard my grandparents talk about their Sumoll vineyards.
We grow vines, cereals and olive trees, according to organic and biodynamic principles. In 2015 I decided to create a cellar with the intention of making the wines that I always dreamt of.
When you’re in the vineyard and
you see the vine surrounded by
the spontaneous vegetation cover,
you become aware of how absurd it is
to try to put parameters to life. “
All of our wineyards are registered at the CCPAE (the catalan governing body of organic farming) since 2009. We strictly apply the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture. We minimize intervention of the soil and leave a spontaneous vegetable cover.
“We see wines as melodies created by the grapes, where each part contributes a different and specific sound: the skin, the pulp, the stem, the seeds, the lees; all of them are necessary to obtain the final melody.”
Our wines are obtained from free-run juice, without pressing, slowly vinified, and macerated with their skins.
The picking and the selecting of the grapes is done manually.
