Product information

Wine of Spain

White Spanish Wine

During the early 1960s, after completing my studies in viticulture, I wanted to put into practice what I had learned in Dijon. In a small garage not far from our winery in Vilafranca del Penedès, I fermented grapes at a low temperature to obtain a fresher and more aromatic white wine. This fortunate discovery provided the basis for what would become Viña Sol, which we continue making with the utmost care to this day, half a century later.

Tasting Notes

Fruity aroma with hints of apple & pineapple. Smooth, balanced palate with a fine acidic edge. Excellent as an aperitif or accompaniment for rice and seafood dishes. Serve chilled.
