Gaintus Radical surprises from the first sight. Bright ruby color, very different from the classic stereotype of “Spanish wine”. On the nose, vibrant aromas of sour cherries and a touch of rusticity, while the palate is brimming with red fruits flavous and spicy notes. Incredible zip from the acidity and tannins. Extremely complex, it does not go unnoticed.

Late 18th century
The winery is founded in L’Avellà as a village cooperative, where wines and oils were made and exported to Cuba.
The Avellà winery had been abandoned for decades, but the vineyards were still farmed by historic sharecroppers.
The Peris family recognizes the high historic value of a small winery and L’Avellà territory’s potential and founds MontRubí, which starts producing cava.
The Peris family makes a strong bet with a young winemaker, Josep Queralt, who is nowadays still in charge of producing our wines, after more than 30 years.
The fever of the Olympic Games in Barcelona is boosting the cava industry and MontRubí has lived some plethoric years producing small production cavas, some of which have been awarded by prestigious wine critics.
After years producing cava and experiencing how the industry was going through a battle of prices, the family decides to change direction and starts with the “Gaintus Project”. This was a firm bet to recover the grape variety Sumoll and was a strong backbone in MontRubí’s philosophy.
MontRubí releases the first 100% Sumoll wine in the world: Gaintus.
