Solaris is L'étranger's experiment with ceramic amphora. Syrah which has been aged for 6 months in ceramic amphora and one year in bottles after 8 days of maceration followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks. This gives rise to a wine which is complex, structured complex approachable in its youth.

Only 1000 bottles were made in 2020.

Brazilian duo Paulo and Laura started the L'étranger which roughly translates to the foreigner in 2018. This was after decades of working in big enterprises with 1.7 ha of vines comprising of Muscat Petit Grain, Maccabeu, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris which is supplemented by 1.5 ha of Grenache and Syrah the following year atop a geographical fault line giving rise to complex terroir of limestone, marl and shale. Since then they have acquired various small parcels of vines including abandoned vines.

Paulo takes a scientific approach backed by curiosity and conscience when it comes to farming, from researching on the use of essential oils and natural remedies in place of chemicals such as copper to how he can reduce the carbon footprint as well as increasing biodiversity at the same time.

As big fans of motion pictures, all of their wines are named after movies.
