Marlène and her husband bought their property back in 1973 as a holiday home. They planted a small vineyard in the mid-70s, pour s’amuser, and in the early 1980s began to plant more seriously, Syrah mainly, with a little Grenache and Mourvèdre. Domaine Peyre Rose debuted its first vintage in 1991 with Clos des Cistes and Syrah Léone.
She is self-taught and she has a very clear idea of the style of wine she wants to make. Her wines enjoy a long fermentation and very long elevage in barrel and bottle.
Domaine Peyre Rose's 26 hectares of vineyards are all grown organically and result in a small annual production of wine, highly sought after by wine lovers and unanimously praised in the specialist press.
The quality of the wines produced by Domaine Peyre Rose, the fruit of Marlene Soria's devotion, has earned her the nickname, "diva of Syrah".
