Famous since time immemorial, the wines of our region, whether Madiran reds or Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh whites, owe everything to the men and women who, ever since the 11th- century Benedictine monks, have put its unique origins to such sublime use. Today, our winegrowers are keeping this tradition very much alive and kicking under the banner of the Marie Maria Vignobles which unites some of the finest terroirs of the appellation. Time to taste our wines!
Marie Maria was born of an intrinsic, profound and heartfelt desire to forge ahead with the work of revealing the subtleties of the great terroirs of Madiran and Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh, for their red and white wines respectively. Our ambition is to shake off the stereotypes of Madiran’s recent image (high in alcohol, full-bodied, concentrated, powerful) and represent, instead, what seem to us to be our appellation’s best attributes: firmness, freshness and balance. You only have to look to the past to see that wine connoisseurs from the four corners of the earth have always praised the region’s unique style and, thanks to the efforts of many determined, hard-working men and women, this is not about to change.
