White is a monovarietal Xarel·lo wine from vineyards planted in 1974. The nutrient­poor soils at high altitude in Alt Penedés are ideal for this versatile variety. 

Lying just 37 miles west of Barcelona, MontRubí is at home in the wine region of Penedès, steeped in hundreds of years of tradition.

The philosophy of the winery is to support traditional, sustainable viticulture that is respectful of the environment, seeking balance between its grape strains and the environment, and at the same time incorporate new technology.
