Marlène Soria

It's an incredible story that Marlène Soria! At the end of her brilliant career in real estate, she moved to the village of Saint Pargoire a few kilometres from Montpellier, in a property lost at the end of a path. Originally coming to hide from the world, she decided to clear the scrubland surrounding her house and turn everything into vines plots in the early 1980s. Then, her sensitivity to the surface of her skin, and her cravings for creativity, grow to become a winemaker, one of the most talented now.
It's an incredible story that Marlène Soria ... At the end of her brilliant career in real estate, she moved to the village of Saint Pargoire a few kilometers from Montpellier, in a property lost at the end of a path. Originally coming to hide from the world, she decided to clear the scrubland surrounding her house and turn everything into plots of vines in the early 1980s. Then, her sensitivity to the surface of her skin and her cravings for creativity grow to become a winemaker, one of the most talented now …
Between 1984 and 1987, she planted mostly Syrah, then Grenache and Mourvèdre for reds. The whites come from Rolle, Roussanne, Viognier, Ugni Blanc and Terret varieties. The 17 hectares of the estate are planted in 3 years. From the beginning, organic farming is the motto of the estate. The first winemaking took place in 1988, and two years later, it was the first bottling. This is how the world-famous Marlene Soria wines were born, which seduce the palate of connoisseurs year after year.

Today, the estate covers 25 hectares of vines including 23 in red and the rest in white. In a purely Mediterranean climate and a beautiful hilly vineyard, clay-limestone soils are mainly composed of friable rocks and hard pebbles.

In the vineyards, Marlène Soria pampers her plants as nobody else does. Here, the Syrah is queen, composing the reds' grape variety to 70%. Other plots are planted in black Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Let's not forget the white with 50% of Rolle (the Italian Vermentino) than several other grape varieties including the Viognier which expresses itself divinely well with Peyre Rose. Marlène Soria follows the principles of organic farming to reveal the expression of the terroir in her greatest sincerity. The yields are very low giving concentrated juices and clearly pruned for the guard.


In the cellars, one obviously feels the close link with the vines. The winemaking is done in concrete vats (painted in pink) and specially adapted to parcels' harvest. This is followed by long maturing in barrels and then rest of a small decade before marketing. All of Marlene Soria's philosophy is to sell only mature wines ready to drink!
