Pepe Raventós’ vision, his growing passion for natural wines, and his desire to always go one step further, brought him and Francesc Escala to research and discover Can Sumoi—a treasure in the mountains of the Baix Penedès. Can Sumoi has impressed all who have known it for the solitude of its surrounding landscape, the mineral nakedness of its soils, the unique geology, and the Mediterranean Sea views. Pepe and Francesc purchased the estate with the desire to produce wines that reflect the special terroir. Ancestral traditions drive the Can Sumoi wines, which are made without any type of additive. Located in Massís del Montmell at 600 meters (1,970 feet) above sea level, Can Sumoi has been an agricultural farm since 1645. The estate has 400 hectares of which 30 are planted to vines. The rest is forest of tall oak and white pine trees. Marine fossils in the soil date back 113 million years. An old stone wall surrounds the winery and three farmhouses, which were built at the end of the 17th century for wine production. On clear days, when there is no wind, one can view Mallorca and the Ebro Delta. Josep Mateu lives at Can Sumoi as a farmhand. His family has been rooted to Can Sumoi for almost a century as farmhands. Josep Mateu will soon be 82 and will be able to celebrate his birthday in the farmhouse where he was born in 1936. He remembers perfectly that during his infancy the Baix Penedès area was a vibrant place full of work and dreams. Because of Pepe and Francesc, Josep once again sees the sun shine through the open door. He is excited to see how Pepe and Francesc will recover this landscape. “Natural wine is not a trend, it is the way you feel as a small winegrower when creating wine.” - Pepe Raventós -Cream Imports
