Solera Bodegas is a family business that has been making traditional and craft wines for
nearly two centuries, producing Spanish wines with excellent character, quality and personality.
Inside the winery one will find the antique clay amphorae, where wines have been aged for more than 200 years alongside the stainless steel tanks also used for modern day wine production. Throughout the winery, you will still find farming tools that have been used for several generations.
The Bodega Solera is unique for its timelessness. Making your way to the cellar, one will find a path lined with fig trees, pine trees, and quinces that perfume your passage. This is a winery where tradition for working the land is everpresent.
All the grapes used in the winery come from estate vineyards, meticulously cared for during the entire year to ensure a high quality organic product. Spanning 17 hectares, the grape varieties grown include Tempranillo and Syrah for red wines, and Malvar for the white wines.
The oldest vineyard plots at the winery date back to 1915 and 1925, and produce truly exceptional and unique wines.
Some parts of the USA can be very hot during the summer - and they seem to be getting HOTTER. A good idea to protect your fragile shipment is to add an ice pack to keep your wine cooler.
We insert the ice pack into your styrofoam shipping carton to add 48 hours of cooling. Although air shipping is the best solution, if the journey to your home from the East Coast is not too long, an ice pack can help.

This Tempranillo is scarlet red color with delicate violet notes. In the nose, there are smells of cherry and black current. It is a light-bodied wine that reminds us of the typical aromas during harvest time. In the palate there is nice structure and typical characteristics from the wines of the region aged in clay amphorae. It is honest, direct, and pleasant.

Bright and ruby red color. An intriguing nose, with ripe fruits, mineral notes, and toasty tanins. The palate is pleasant and balanced with a toffee, caramel, and a cacao aftertaste.

With a bright, almost transparent color, this Spanish white wine is fresh and aromatic, with hints of apple, pear skin and citrus. Very smooth in the palate leaving a slight tingle on the tip of the tongue coming from the carbon dioxide. The finish is characteristic of the Malvar grape.
