Felix Solis Avantis raises a glass to Japan’s healthy wine market
The winery was recently awarded sixth place in the Top 100 Best Wineries of the World by the World Ranking of Wines and Spirits and second place in the Best Wineries of Spain category.
“Sixth place in the world recognizes our philosophy, which is to make excellent wines that are also good value for money,” said Felix Solis Ramos, director of export and marketing. “The enjoyment of good wines does not have to be reserved for the few.”
One of the most relevant figures in the world of wine, James Suckling, recently awarded 93 points to Felix Solis Avantis’ Vina Albali Gran Reserva Seleccion Privada 2011. The excellent score reflects the extraordinary quality of one of the most exclusive Felix Solís Avantis wines.
After Chile, France and Italy, Spain is the fourth-largest wine supplier to Japan. With a growing number of Spanish bars and restaurants opening in Tokyo and other cities, more Spanish wine is being consumed in Japan.
The winery opened a Tokyo office in 2007, and since 2014 Japanese wine magazine WANDS has regularly ranked Felix Solis Avantis as a number one supplier to Japan.
In the last contest of the Japan Wine Challenge, Centola 2017 received a gold medal while Vina Albali Crianza 2015, Vina Albali Gran Reserva Seleccion Privada 2012 and Pulpo 2017 all received silver medals.
Having tasted success in Japan, the country will remain an important market for Felix Solis Avantis wines for years to come.
