For the creation of the World Ranking of Wines & Spirits, the prestigious association of wine journalists uses data from national and international competitions whose results are public and the score of each winery is established based on the significance of each contest and the importance of the medals awarded. This is why, in 2016, Félix Solís Avantis achieved 2.917 points, ensuring a position of sixth place in importance worldwide after participating in 12 competitions and obtaining 200 decorations.
With regard to the ranking by country, Spain ranks first with 20 Spanish wineries in the “Top 100 worldwide”, with 5,080 medals obtained in 23 international competitions. According to this classification, Félix Solís Avantis achieved the second best position as best Spanish winery in 2017, only surpassed by González Byass.
These awards at an international level are in recognition of the company’s extraordinary business and professional development, as well as for the quality and competitiveness of its wines. In this sense Félix Solís Ramos, Director of Exportation and Marketing of the company is very pleased with the achievements and states that “sixth place in the world recognises our philosophy, which is to make excellent wines which are also good value for money; the enjoyment of good wines does not have to be reserved for the few”.
