Domaine Solence is a 14 hectare husband and wife run winery located in

Carpentas (Vaucluse) Anne-Marie grew up not too far from the Vauclus

(Aveyron) and study agronomy and met Jean Luc a young study of

oenology. Their freshly printed diplomas in hand, the two started the

domaine in 1990 and since 1992 the winery has been certified organic.

Anne Marie greets customers at the winery, does all the administrative

work, takes people on tours of the winery, and of course when needed

helps in the vineyards. Jen Luc is in the winery and in the vineyards. The

small team of two gets a little bigger every year when seasonal workers

help with the harvest.

The 14 hectares of the estate today are spread over a terroir with two very

distinct geological identities. The first, is composed of alluvial soils,

calcareous, very porous this is where the syrah, grenache and even

marselan (cross of Cab sauv and Grenache) flourish. The other part is

marked by shallow clay loam soils, which are also colder. Rich in

minerality this terroir is favorable to whites and roses.
