Solstice Blanc Dry 2021 (Rhône, France)
White | Clairette, Marsanne, Vermentino, Viognier

Solstice Blanc is a thirst-quenching natural white wine with aromas of flowers and stone fruit made from Vermentino, Muscat petit grain, Marsanne, Viognier, Clairette and Bourboulenc grown in the south-facing terraces of Aygues. It was hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts in concrete vats. Full bodied, on the nose it has aromas of almonds and lime zest, and a hint of wild Mediterranean herbs and spice. On the palate, it is round and creamy, with notes of vanilla, orange peel and candied grapefruit.

Solstice Rouge 2021 (Rhône, France)
Red | Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvèdre

Solstice Rouge is an easy drinking wine, with no chemical additives, made from a blend of red grapes, with nothing added and nothing taken away. It is natural and unfiltered and is quite inky in appearance with earthy undertones. The palate is fruity and earthy, with notes of black pepper and garrigue. On the palate is delicate and elegant, with nicely integrated tannins. Perfect to pair with meat stews or grilled meats with aromatic herbs.

It's always lovely when enjoyed on it's own.

Renaissance 2017 (Rhône, France)
Red | Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah

This is one of the most exciting raw and natural wines ever produced. Un-fined. Unfiltered. Low sulphites. It's a beautiful, powerful blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged in concrete for 24 months, to preserve the natural fruit flavours. This blend shows powerful, ripe dark fruit, leather, black olives and an array of herbs and spices that linger well into the finish. This can easily be enjoyed on its own, but will just as well accompany hearty stews, game & well-seasoned grilled meat or vegetables.

Energie 2021 (Rhône, France)
Red | Syrah

From young vines of Syrah with a splash of Mourvèdre and tiny amounts Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Muscardin, and Counoise, “Energie;” vinified and aged in a combination of cement and steel tanks for one year with no added sulfur. The long but gentle infusion-method of extraction gives this wine great clarity of line, with pure, ringing acidity and a tasteful spiciness that speaks more of the northern Rhône than the frequently coarse Syrah of these southerly zones; its name could hardly be more apt. Great to drink on it's own or to pair with light dinners.

About the Winery

Domaine Viret

In a magical place steeped in history, Saint-Maurice, in the Rhone Valley. Advocates of the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture, the Viret family has chosen to employ a particular form of natural viticulture throughout their estate. Known as “cosmoculture®”, this is based on cosmotelluric exchanges. Everything is organised in such a way that both vines and wines are able draw on their own natural defences.

Work in the vineyards focuses on reorganising the magnetic field and on the application of homeopathic and naturals preparations made from rocks and plants that are often found in the vineyards. Alain, Philippe's father, built the winery on an ancient Roman site around an underground spring which they believe energises the vineyards and the winery.
