    Description

    Made with love and respect by hard-working nuns in the Languedoc, this truly delectable, intoxicating vinegar is lovely drizzled over a ripe canteloupe melon and great for deglazing the pan to make an unctuous gravy after roasting chicken, pheasant or guinea fowl. Great also for a classic waldorf salad dressing.

    About Solan Monastery
    About thirty minutes drive from Uzes in the Gard region in the Languedoc is the isolated Monastery of Solan. Founded in 1991 by a French monk from the orthodox Greek monastery of Simonos Petras in Mount Athos, it is now home to a thriving community of nuns working the land.

    Over the past twenty-five years, they have transformed the unforgiving landscape into a model site of biodiversity. Restoring 60 hectares of land into various flourishing eco-systems, including an area classified as ‘Mediterranean Wetland’ that was awarded the distinction of the Natura 2000 conservation label in 2009. When they started, the nuns sought the advice of Pierre Rabhi, the pioneering French philosopher and agroecologist who helped them implement a sustainable approach to farming the land enabling the community to restore and nourish the soil.

    Today, with Pierre Rahbi and numerous local volunteer’s help, their land has become a veritable Garden of Eden. 'He told us that the land could not enrich us but that it would make us live', Mother Hypandia says, 'We must always listen to the earth and restore and nourish the soil and agrobiology is always respectful of its integrity'. Now, they make certified organic wines, countless jams and small quantities of delicious fruit and herb infused vinegars sold in the monastery shop and local farmer’s markets which we are very happy to bring to you. All of their vinegars bear the 'produits certifies issus de l'agriculture biologique' which is an EU Organic certification.
