At the beginning of 2015, Bohigas decided to recover an old vineyard of this variety from the Can Macià estate, in Òdena (Anoia), planted in 1945. The vineyard had not been worked for approximately a decade and the Sumoll that had been cultivated the Previous years it was sold in bulk to other producers to make table wine.
During the 2015 campaign, 2,000 liters of Sumoll wine were produced with grapes harvested by hand, which were fermented using the ancient method of fermentation, from Roman times, with 250-liter ceramic jugs and 8 months of aging.
