About the WineMaker
The history of Félix Solís, begins with the lifelong career of the father of the current owners, Mr Félix Solís Fernández, who in 1952 moved with his family from his home town of Villanueva de los Infantes to Valdepeñas, a city renowned for its long grape and winegrowing traditions.
In Valdepeñas, the Solís family, whose history in the wine business dates back to the end of the 19th century, bought the renowned “Casa del Huerto del Cura”, where they started to produce wine. Today it is known as the “Viña Albali” winery and acts as the headquarters of Félix Solís, S.A. It has retained the original warehouses, the tinajas (huge earthenware jars), the barrels (where some of its best wines are aged), the underground cellar and even the structure of this typical ancestral home of La Mancha.
Since its early beginnings, Bodegas Felix Solis has grown to the point where it is now placed among the top Spanish wine companies and is also one of the most important worldwide. Félix Solís combines artisan traditions with state-of-the-art technology when making its wine, thereby guaranteeing efficiency throughout the process and the maximum quality of the end product. It owns the largest automated and air-conditioned wine warehouse in Europe, with the capacity of storing eighteen million bottles, a figure which it intends to increase by seventy percent to thirty million bottles.
Despite its international success, Félix Solís Avantis, which dates back to 1952, still maintains its family structure, the sole proprietors being the four Solis brothers -Félix, Pedro, Juan Antonio and Manuel.
About the Wine
This wine is the result of the best selection of Tinta de Toro grapes, from vines aged between 30 and 80 years old. The harvest is carried out by hand in order to preserve the good quality of the grapes.
The grapes are carefully selected and undergo a period of maceration that lasts twelve hours; this ensures that the wine acquires its typical colour and aromas. Following this, the fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
This results in a fine Rose, deep raspberry in colour, with purple tones. Fruity on the nose, with hints of raspberry and strawberry. A perfect balance between intensity and freshness. Elegant and pleasant on the palate, with fruity flavours and a long finish.
Perfect with salads, white meats and asparagus. Best served chilled (12-14ºC).
