Xarel-lo is a Spanish grape variety native to Catalunya and typically used in Cava for its high acidity and light body. White is made from Xarel·lo wine from vineyards planted in 1974. The nutrient-poor soils at high altitude in Alt Penedés are ideal for this versatile variety. Since 2000, MontRubí has been known for its  production of the Catalan grape variety, Summol. A rare variety that was rarely seen or spoken about, in an area that has been internationally recognized for making the best sparkling wines of the Iberian Peninsula, the goal for Mont Rubí was to create still wines from indigenous and overlooked varieties.
