Good Value Spanish Tempranillo
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.
