Mentioned in the predictions of Nostradamus, painted by Van Gogh, and referred to by Simone de Beauvoir ( famed 20th century French author-philosopher) Mas de la Dame has been producing wines and olive oil now for four generations.
The property in its current form was established by Auguste Faye, whose great-grand daughters Ca roline Missoffe and Anne Poniatowski now manage the estate, which covers 740 acres of which 140 acres planted with vineyards and 70 acres planted to olive groves.
Laying at the feet of the legendary village of Les Baux de Provence on the southern flanks of the sheltering Alpilles mountain ridge, the vines benefit from a unique terroir and a quite specific microclimate.
Our vineyards in this part of the Alpilles grow on a very well drained soil formed from eroded argilo-calcareous soil, mingling a harmonious balance with the surrounding garrigue, a blend of wild aromatic Provencal herbs.
The persistent mistral promotes healthy vines and an exchange of aromas.
To help preserve this exceptional environment, we practice organic agriculture.
The soil is worked mechanically while herbicides and pesticides are forbidden
If your travels bring you to Provence, you can come and taste our wines and oils in the cellar.
