Certified Organic & Biodynamic practices
Cal Tiques is a relatively small familiy-owned winery near Vilafranca del Penedes, in the centre of Catalonia's wine growing region. Joan Rubio started his own project in 2015 after having been the technical director at the famous cava house of Recaredo. Using old familiy fields he strictly applies the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture; minimum intervention of the soil and spontaneous vegetable cover. His award-winning wines are obtained from free-run juice, without pressing, slowly vinified and macerated with their skins. A mix of stainless steel, oak and ceramic vessels is used to obtain varying flavours. Typical of his wines is the low alcohol percentage.
