Solar de Ayala is located in an incomparable setting, at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria, very close to Laguardia, in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa. The winery combines the most modern production systems with traditional know-how.
The 40,000 square metre property contains the winery’s vineyard, a production cellar, an area for maturing and aging, a bottling warehouse and a common area in which guests can taste the wines and try local cuisine.
The vineyards are a fundamental part of Solar de Ayala’s work. The main varieties are grown with expert hands on slopes oriented to midday sun to produce high-quality wines. Our vineyards are no more than 20 kilometres from the winery, guaranteeing that the fruit is harvested at its optimal point of ripeness at harvest time. We harvest grapes of the most important varieties: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Viura.
Guests can also visit ‘El Aguartxal’, our most important vineyard, where, in addition to learning all about wine growing in the Rioja Alavesa, they can enjoy unique views of the walled town of Laguardia and the Sierra de Cantabria mountain range, as well as over the sea of vineyards that stretch to the horizon, looking southwards towards the river Ebro.
