Bodegas Solar de Urbezo

In 1995, Santiago Gracia Ysiegas took up the tradition of his family and founded the winery Bodegas Solar de Urbezo. His vocation was to elaborate grapes from the vineyards of the Gracia-Campillo family, offering total guarantee of purity and quality in their wines. The winery is located in Carinena, region of Aragon, 45 km from Zaragoza.The culture of wine growing in Carinena is one of the most ancient in Spain; it goes back to the 3rd century, when the Romans inhabited this land. The cultivation of grapes was maintained throughout time and still constitutes an essential part in the way of life, economy and historical heritage of the area.

The altitude where the vineyards are located, the extreme climate with cold winters and hot summers, the scarce rainfall and the calcareous clay-gravel soils, are essential for the vines to develop to their full potential, obtaining low productions of superior quality and wines of splendid expression. Solar de Urbezo cultivates with care 100 hectares of vineyards, to achieve superior quality grapes which concentrate aromas, colour and structure.
