About Us - How SOMA Wines Was Born

Austrian wine really holds a special place in our hearts. It has been such a prominent feature of so many memories to date: from our first ski trip together to our wedding in Styria, family birthdays, holidays with friends, the list continues.

The one common thread, every friend, colleague and family member who we introduced to Austrian wines (from young, easy-drinking Grüner Veltliners to iconic red blends) was won over and amazed by the value for such great quality.

However, whenever we came home to the UK, we really struggled to find much choice, especially not at decent value.

"Cue lockdown and a relative drought of the good stuff – we became determined to get more of it into the UK."

SOMA Wines was thereby founded from a long-standing passion for creating memories and sharing our Austrian wine discoveries with friends, family and now all of you.

We’ve worked hard to curate a list of wines which really reflects the quality and breadth of style that Austria has to offer. We’ve met all of our producers in person and worked with them on our selection for the UK – we hope that you enjoy these as much as we do!

We’d love to hear your thoughts / requests / feedback so please do get in touch anytime. Prost and Happy Drinking!
