From our humble winery ABA SOLLEIRA, we will try through this blog to bring the history, the territory, the vineyards, the wineries and the wines of this magical land closer together.
We are not experts in social networks, neither bloggers, or youtubers, … We are agronomists and winemakers who with passion and respect try to make a wonderful wine in a wonderful territory. We want this blog to be a space for communication through which we will try to share our philosophy and way of understanding viticulture and wine.
Thank you and please help us to spread the word! We’re a small fish in the ocean and mouth to mouth is really helpful for us to arrive everywhere.
