Creamy & Citrusy

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 located in Saint Maurice, Rhône. 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 defenses.

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.

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.
