Vinification Details

  • The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked before embarking on the maceration process for 8 days to allow the skins to be in contact with must. Must is then fermented at a controlled temperature (26-29 ºC) for 8 to 12 days. This ensures that the wine acquires its characteristic colour and polished tannins. Finally the wine is aged for 18 months in new American oak barrels before resting quietly in bottles to ensure complete maturity for 18 months.

History

  • The winery, which opened in 2006, is one of the largest in La Rioja. It is located next to an ancient river bed and from it you enjoy views of the mountains in Rioja Alavesa. It combines tradition with modern architecture. Huge chimneys and steel covers resemble a vessel that dominates the landscape. A fir-wood baseboard embellishes the barrel cellar. The Solís family is associated to more than 1,000 family-owned vine growers that cover around 3,500 hectares across La Rioja.

Regional Information

  • Spain's most internationally famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, by the side of the River Ebro from which the region's name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of the wines shaped in this ancient region. The variety of its soils, together with the combination of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines that exhibit different personalities.
