The Story

The breathtaking 16th-century wine estate of Mas de la Dame is situated in Les Baux de Provence, a charming medieval village perched atop a rocky outcrop in southern France’s Apilles Mountains. The essence of this rugged area’s haunting, windswept beauty is captured most evocatively in the celebrated paintings of Van Gogh. No insecticides or herbicides are used. Copper and sulphur contents are limited. The soil is worked by tilling and enriched by applying manure of organic origin.
