Domaine Solence

Domaine Solence is located in the beautiful foothills of Mt Ventoux and is the vision of Jean-Luc and Anne-Marie Isnard, who manifested their dream to make wine using organic farming methods in their favorite part of Provence. When the Domaine was founded in 1992, Jean-Luc and Anne -Marie set out with a desire to establish a trend within the appellation for sustainable viticulture - a trend that has only increased over the past 30 + years. Since inception Solence has held Ecocert Status for organic wine making and viticulture practices.

Jean-Luc and Anne - Marie’s vision dates back to university when the two met while he was studying Oenology and she was studying Agronomy and decided that upon graduation they would build an estate together with the philosophy to work with nature rather than against it.

Many years later this husband-and-wife team has grown the Domaine to 14 hectares of vines, spread over a terroir with two very distinct geological identities. One part is composed of alluvial soils and limestone that drains particularly well, allowing syrah, grenache and marselan to flourish. The other part is marked by mineral heavy, silty-clay soils with a colder climate that when paired together makes a great growing environment for their whites and rosés.

The wine is vinified in their eco-cellar and aged in a combination of stainless steel and wood foudres, with particular attention to the monitoring of fermentation temperatures.

Each plot at the Domaine is subjected to separate vinification, and each wine blended from a combination of these parcels results in a fantastic range of wines – from wines that are perfect for summertime apéro to wines with enough body and flavor to compliment the most gourmet of meals.

In his spare time, Jean Luc is the founding president of Bios Ventoux, an association that today brings together twelve organic winegrowers within the Ventoux AOC as well as an active board member of both the AOC Ventoux and Organic Wines of Southeast France.
