The name of Domaine de La Solitude originates from a rule of the community of the Holy Family: to pray in the silence of solitude. The community moved to the estate in the 19th century. The nuns decide to entrust the wine management of this Pessac-Léognan estate to outside parties. Since 1993, Olivier Bernard has been managing the estate. A very old property of Martillac, Domaine de la Solitude is distinguished by the quality of its wines, offering fantastic value for money. These wines are accessible in their youth, but also promise good evolution over years of ageing in bottle.
A reference among Pessac-Léognan wines, Domaine de la Solitude spreads over 30 hectares of vines that rest on a gravelly soil upon a clay-gravel subsoil. 6 hectares of the vineyard are dedicated to the cultivation of white grape varieties.
