Joan Rubió seems to wield a strange magic which allows him to grow grapes like Ull de Llebre (the near-unpronounceable Catalan name for Tempranillo) to reach full ripeness whilst only notching a relatively minuscule 11.5% alcohol,. This is full of fleshy, dark red fruit and enough freshness to suggest a slight chill would suit it nicely.

Joan Rubió

Joan Rubió comes from a family of traditional winemakers who had their business undercut and effectively destroyed by large cava houses, whose exponential growth created what amounted to a monopoly for grapes grown in the region. Undeterred, Joan took over his family’s vines while working a day for Recaredo, unquestionably the best cava operation going, where he honed his craft and during a 14-year stint there pushed the farming and winemaking to exciting new places. Today he’s back amongst those vines that were once owed by his family making some of Spain’s most startlingly bright, layered wines under his own label.
