The Domain: SO Vignerons (SV) is a small négociant structure, producing typical, high-quality Languedoc wines. The company was founded by Claude Serra (the "S") and Daniel Orsolini (the "O") in 2005. Claude, SO Vignerons' winemaker consultant, is also a Professor at Montpellier University of Oenology, and manages the company's viticulture and winemaking.

The philosophy behind So Vignerons is to produce high-quality, modern-style Languedoc wines at very affordable prices. This has been made possible by the long-term contracts signed with their growers; having Claude as the winemaker/consultant to all their growers; and using a state-of-the-art bottling line.

All SO Vignerons' wines are vinified by Claude and come from vineyards located on specially selected terroirs producing characteristic varietals from the Languedoc region. Their aim is to share their passion for their wines and region and a commitment to preserve the environment. The Villa Des Croix property is planted with Picpoul, Viognier, Pinot Noir, and Terret. The Villa des Croix wines each adhere to a monovarietal approach.
