Le Soula produces wines of remarkable quality at high altitude in the Fenouillèdes region of the Roussillon, in the foothills of the Pyrénées, up above the Agly valley.

Le Soula’s wines combine freshness and vitality, a characteristic which stems from the soil and the climate. The soil is granitic and poor. The climate is hard and extreme, combining the heat of the Southern sun with the cold and rain of the mountains at a height of between 350 and 600 metres, and the effects of the Tramontane wind.

There are 53 hectares of which 23 are planted with vines in small widely spread parcels with different expositions to the sun.

Gérard Gauby, the Roussillon's most highly respected vigneron, had become aware of the potential of vineyards at higher altitude to produce wines with real finesse. In 2001 he formed a partnership with his English wine importers, Roy Richards and Mark Walford, to create a new estate. In 2008, they were joined by Gérald Standley who now runs the vineyard and has become a partner in the enterprise. In 2016 Wendy Paille, with considerable experience of managing in vineyards on the Loire and in the United States, took over from Gerald, and she now heads up the team at le Soula.

Since the outset, the vineyards have been managed organically and they are now worked biodynamically. Being completely organic the vineyards are a haven for flora and fauna. Wild boar emerge from the forests to turn over the soils in search of grubs and herbs, which are to be found in abundance.

The vineyard is principally composed of very old vines with some planted more recently. The red grape varieties are Carignan, Syrah and Grenache Noir. The white wines are blended from a cocktail of Macabeu, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc and Gris, Vermentino, Marsanne, Roussanne, Malvoisie du Roussillon and Chardonnay.
