Founder Félix Solís Fernández and his wife Leonor Yáñez move from Félix’s home town in Villanueva de los Infantes to Valdepeñas. He buys the renowned Casa del Huerto del Cura, the house in the priest’s garden. The winery has retained the original warehouses, the tinajas (huge earthenware jars), the barrel cellars, the underground cave and the typical layout of La Mancha’s manor houses. It is the current headquarters of the company.
Félix Solís Avantis is a leading producer in the international wine industry that can be found in more than 115 countries.
The company is owned by the third generation Solís brothers, who still combine tradition and modernization. Its plant in Valdepeñas has evolved to become one of the largest and most innovative wine-producing facilities in the world.
