between the forest
and the vineyard
in the Montmell
Pepe Raventós’ passion for recovering the landscape and old high mountain vineyards in the heart of the Penedès led him to discover Can Sumoi. An integrated and abandoned estate, dating back to 1645, at 600m above sea level with 20ha of vines over 50 years old and 380ha of forest; a main winery and three late seventeenth century farmhouses where wine used
to be made.
An estate the creates an impression due to the solitude of the place that surrounds it and its magnificent views of the Mediterranean Sea, and where, in just six harvests, we have recovered the entire abandoned vineyard, planted anew; and, we are helping to protect the forest that surrounds it. In addition to being placed in the context of natural wines and being recognized as one of the 100 best wineries in the world, according to the prestigious American magazine Wine & Spirits.
The Can Sumoi wines were born in 2017. All of them are organic and natural wines made with the minimum intervention possible in all viticulture and winemaking processes.
Can Sumoi is an example of landscape recovery, of wine culture and that agriculture is the most natural way of protecting the forest.
