Félix Solís Avantis becomes the first winery group certified with AgroCovid 19 for its preventive measures against COVID 19 

All of the group’s six wineries, under the branding of Félix Solís and Pagos del Rey have obtained this prestigious certification from the Hispanic Certification Society, after an external audit that has verified the maximum preventive measures against coronavirus

This certification is added to other commitments of the group in the face of the pandemic such as the donation of masks and its Hospitality Support Plan

Félix Solís Avantis has obtained the AgroCovid 19 certificate, granted by the Sociedad Hispana de Certificación, S.A. (SOHISCERT), a certification body for agri-food activities and a leader in the sector. With this distinction, Félix Solís becomes the first winery group in Spain to obtain this Agrosanitary Protocol certification.

This certification is granted after passing an external audit that has guaranteed that Félix Solís Avantis provides all its workers, grape suppliers and visitors with the highest security measures against the virus. All the group’s wineries and brands have received it, both from Félix Solis S.L. (Valdepeñas and La Puebla de Almoradiel) and the four Pagos del Rey S.L. sites (Rueda, Olmedillo de Roa, Fuenmayor and Morales de Toro). The validity period of the certification covers until December 31, 2021.

With this external certification, Félix Solís reiterates its clear message of commitment to safety, social and business responsibility, and the most rigorous compliance with current legislation. It should be noted that the group’s wineries continued their activity normally even at the peak of the pandemic, as they were part of the market supply chain of food and beverage production. For this, a rigorous Protocol of Prevention and Labour Measures was developed that would allow the activity to continue safely.

These measures of social distance, disinfection, hygienic controls and body temperature monitoring apply to both workers and external visitors, carriers, loading docks and reception of materials. Training plans, reorganization measures and contingency plans were also developed to anticipate stockpiling of merchandise and avoid service problems.

Felix Solis Avantis presents Casa Albali in an exclusive event for on- trade professionals in Valdepenas

Felix Solis Avantis invited more than 170 people, all of them professionals from the on-trade and press in the family´s hometown of Valdepenas. The purpose of the event was to present the new range of wines “Casa Albali” with a wonderful dinner of 6 dishes for the 6 wines of the range Casa Albali.

This year Felix Solis Avantis has launched a new brand especially designed for the on-trade. Casa Albali reflects the origin of the family Solis (making wines in their house – “casa” in Spanish) and also the tradition of a family devoted to wines. Casa Albali also aims to reach the new trends and the new consumers in the market. Under the appellation Valdepenas, Casa Albali young wines are modern with local and other French grape varieties and the oaked wines are made of selected grapes and under the highest quality standards.

The presentation of Casa Albali took place on December 1st in La Aguzadera restaurant in Valdepenas. The activity was a special dinner with 6 courses and a dessert. Felix Solis Avantis Technical Manager, Mr. Antolin Gonzalez, explained the wines. Adan Israel, sommelier from the restaurant El Granero, explained the pairings with the proposed menu, which was deliciously made by the expertise of La Aguzadera professionals.

This was the menu: mousse of foie with mango with Casa Albali white, white asparagus with Casa Albali rosé, courgette soup with Iberico ham powder with Casa Albali tempranillo- shiraz, spiced meat (“mollejas”) with potato cream with Casa Albali Gran Seleccion, cod in tomato and olive oil dressing with Casa Albali Crianza, roasted beef in truffle sauce with Casa Albali Gran Reserva de Familia; and finally, as dessert, apple cake with berries ice cream with the new Frissé rosé.

During the event, the Solis family honoured Mr. Fernando Rodriguez Rias, owner from the old restaurant “Los Corales”, who devoted more than 50 years to the on trade business. Mr. Felix Solis Yanez, president and CEO of Felix Solis Avantis, handed Fernando a special gift for his experience. This was a very nice moment of the event, when Fernando thanked and shared the “award” with the rest of the on trade people.

After the formal moment, there was a time to laugh with the monologue of Juanjo Albinana, who pleased the public with wise local jokes.

In Felix Solis- Yanez´s words, “we needed to organize an event like this, especially made for our on-trade clients in Valdepenas. That´s why we wanted to make the first presentation of Casa Albali in our hometown, where the family has grown”.
