Characteristics of Gaintus Vertical

Gaintus Vertical is a red wine made by the Heretat Mont Rubí winery, located in the town of Font-Rubí to the north of the D.O. Penedès, more than 500 metres above sea level. 


In 2000, they started a project to restore the Sumoll grape variety, an old widespread variety in Catalonia, which was disappearing due to its delicacy and difficulty in cultivating it. Gaintus was the first single-variety Sumoll wine in the world. 

The philosophy of the winery is to support traditional and sustainable viticulture that is respectful of the environment. They also seek balance between the grape strains and the environment, and incorporate the latest technologies at the same time. 

Gaintus Vertical is a 100% Sumoll wine. It is harvested manually, and passes over a selection table as soon as it arrives in the winery. It begins being vinified with a cold pre-maceration, then ferments for 45 days with maceration and gentle pigeage. After being aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels, it rests for a minimum of 24 months in the bottle before being released to the market. 

The Sumoll variety is absolutely well-defined in this intense and expressive wine. Notes of ripe fruits fuse perfectly with the minerality and roasted hints, with a freshness that lends it harmony and roundness.

Designation of Origin D.O. Penedès

Winery Heretat Mont Rubí

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Penedès

Heretat Mont Rubí was the first winery in the world to made and market, in 2001, a varietal wine of Sumoll. This is now part of the history of Penedès and of the wines from Catalonia, and it must be included in the world’s wine encyclopedias. This new scenario was the direct effect of a lot of effort and a methodology used as the base of that essential professional skill of joining strictness and imagination, which are so characteristic of the artist. It can be called a renewed philosophy, but the truth is that after years of effort and tough decisions, Heretat Mont Rubí is now immersed in a brand new winemaking project aimed at achieving high-level qualitative values in their personal wines.
