History & Geography
The original winery was founded in one of the emblematic manors of Laguardia, within the walled enclosure of the villa. It was there that the first Solar Viejo was developed, the icon of the winery. The current facilities, built over 30 years ago, are in the vicinity of the town and preserve the essence of that original experience. Vineyards that incorporate the expressiveness of a demanding land with excellent wine, a traditional production method and the incorporation of new technologies are the three pillars on which Solar Viejo is established, a benchmark for the oldest D.O. in Spain.
