About 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 name of our winery "SOLAR DE URBEZO" has its origin from the surname of a gifted painter from Aragon, ANTONIO URBEZO. He was born in CariƱena, and developed his artistic career in Bilbao. Santiago Gracia chose his name for his winery and wines in recognition of his art and of the affection of the painter towards his family and the land of CariƱena.
