Description

Vignerons Catalans is a powerful group of 1,500 small vignerons with 15 appellations and 25,000 acres. It is mostly a marketing and technical structure. Every vigneron can choose to make their own wine, under their own name. The Soulane domaine is situated on an elevated plateau facing south. The grapes get a long exposure to the sun. Yet, the relative coolness due to altitude will bring balance and freshness. The soil is quartz and granite, reflecting the heat of the day.
