About Joan Rubio

Previously the technical director at the Cava house Recaredo for more than a decade, Joan Rubio returned to the small family farmhouse Cal Tiques and its vineyards (where he grew up) in 2015. Here Joan started making wine, of his own, both sparkling and still, in a natural way

Joan is one of the few people in the world the truly know the Penedes wines best, understanding how the land works to truly interpret the expression of fruit and time in his wines, like no one else! Making natural wine following biodynamic principles in the vineyards, he works with varietals like Xarel·lo, Macabeo, Ull de Llebre, and Monastrell.

His vineyard is full of life with plants and flowers amongst the vines. The wines are a reflection of his hard work from start to finish, with an undeniable energy and expressiveness.

Every wine is different and must be treated individually. Joan always de-stems his fruit and macerates his ferments since Joan believes that the expression of terroir resides in the skins. Then the juice is drained with the help of gravity before placing it in different aging vessels.
