MAS DE LA LUNE
VANESSA AND MATTHIEU COURTAY
Mathieu and Vanessa met in Corsica. After living in Paris for a while, they realized they needed to reconnect with the land so they left everything behind and settled in Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet in their beloved Agly Valley.
Located in the South-West of France, the Mas de la Lune is a family estate in biodynamic and organic conversion that offers environmentally friendly wines. Located at an altitude of over 300 metres in the heart of the Agly Valley, the Mas de la Lune vineyard benefits from an extremely rich soil made up of shale and granitic sand.
The old vines that grow there are typical Catalan grape varieties, namely Black Grenache; Macabeo, a very aromatic white grape variety; Mourvèdre, a wine grape rich in tannins and spicy black fruit aromas; Carignan, a grape variety that brings power and structure to red wines; as well as Syrah and Grenache Gris. These grape varieties are hand picked and put in small crates. The biodynamic farming methods employed are meant to be as natural as possible, with respect both for the environment and the consumer.
