Located in the heart of the Penedès, one of the major wine producing areas and cava in the world, Cal Biohotel Ruget is surrounded by a sea of endless vineyards, ensuring a constantly changing landscape.

With an excellent location, offering magnificent views of the mountains of Montserrat to the north and the magnificent Castel Sant Martí Sarroca southwest, and the littoral plain and Penedes.

The house, built in the early SXX, has the structure of a typical rural building in the area, a farmhouse, with many details typical of this type of architecture.

The property, which occupies an area of 10,000 m2, has his own own vineyard, an organic garden and a large garden with pool and lots of corners designed to relax and enjoy unparalleled peace of mind.

Ecogastronomy

Eco gastronomy is the meeting point between ethics and pleasure, stressing individual flavours, artesan food production, small scale agriculture, sustainable and organic methods of farming and fishing. It also means taking our time in sharing the pleasures of the table which is missing in rushed lifestyles, the appreciation of and respect for the environment, the cultural identity of small towns and the welfare of animals. 

Bio-gastronomy is about dietary democracy and the right of every community to decide what they wish to cultivate, produce and eat.
