Paul Mas wines are the result of a symbiotic relationship between an extraordinary region for producing wines, passion for the vineyard, respect for the grapes during vinification, and great blending and aging knowledge. Paul Mas 1892 wine is a tribute to Raymond Mas, Jean-Claude’s grandfather. It commemorates his way of farming the vineyard, without using any chemical products, as well as his traditional way of making wine, respecting the fruit of the vineyard. His hard work and appreciation of the artful techniques enabled him to create his wines.
