La Aguilera, a village with some of the oldest vineyards in Ribera del Duero
Hacienda Solano is a small family bodega situated in La Aguilera, Burgos. A village which has some of the best and oldest vineyards in D.O. Ribera del Duero.
Initially their grapes were sold to wineries like Vega Sicilia and Emilio Moro. In 2016 winemaker Toni Sarrión was invited to make Hacienda Solano’s own wine and he has managed the winemaking ever since. Together with Sophie Kuhn and the rest of the family Cubillo Solano, he makes wines that respect their philosophy.
The philopsophy – expressions of a vineyard
