SOLAR VIEJO

Solar Viejo, situated in Rioja Alavesa in the northern part of La Rioja and close to the medieval village of Laguardia, was founded in 1937. Solar Viejo is named after the "Casas Solariegas", ancestral homes or family seats that are typical in Laguardia.

For generations the winery has had a strong relationship, based on life-long collaboration, with local vine growers. This relationship ensures that the grapes are of the best quality.

About the Winemaker

VANESA INSAUSTI

“The word wine inspires many memories. The first that comes to mind is the smell of wine from the very first winepress I saw when I was little; this was, for me, unmistakable. I was 5 years old and still did not know that wine would be a fundamental part of my life, but this memory was a special moment that would accompany me throughout my entire personal and professional experiences.

During my winemaking career in various wineries, I’ve been able to discover every day why and how to develop a Tempranillo de Rioja in different areas: the elegance of Rioja Alta that I discovered in Briones, the colour intensity that I found in Rioja Baja, and I was constantly surprised by the fruity aromas and structure of Rioja Alavesa.

Since I started working at Solar Viejo Wineries in 2007, located in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, I have had the opportunity to see for myself that in Rioja no two vintages are alike, but all are interconnected: the fruitiness of Tempranillo is always flavoured with structure and elegance, features that we always seek out in our wines.

I want to reflect this strong Rioja wine character in Solar Viejo, one that is unmistakable, like my first memory…”
