The family run winery takes pride and respect for the land and commitment to sustainability by producing their own compost and practicing organic farming. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks using native yeast. The malolactic fermentation occurs in used French oak barrique. Then the wine is moved to new French oak barrels for 15 months of refinement.
“The 2014 Solnia Monastrell Old Vines Reserve coming from vines planted 1935-1975 and fermented and aged in French oak for 15 months. This 100% Mourvèdre cuvée exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, loads of black raspberry and blackberry fruit, a touch of oak and earth. It’s a beauty – deep, full-bodied and loaded with character and concentration.” – 90 points, Wine Advocate
This is one of the top value wineries in all of Spain, working from generic appellations such as La Mancha to Jumilla and Alicante. They produce an amazing amount of inexpensive, high-quality wine that sells for a song.
