Cited in the predictions of Nostradamus, painted by Van Gogh, mentioned by Simone de Beauvoir, the Mas de la Dame has been producing wine and olive oil for four generations.
Caroline Missoffe and Anne Poniatowski, the founder’s great-granddaughters, now manage this estate which extends over three hundred hectares, including 57 hectares of vines and 28 hectares of olive trees.
Located at the foot of the mythical village of Baux de Provence, on the southern slope of the Alpilles, sheltered from the mountain barrier, the wines benefit from a unique terroir and a very specific microclimate.
On a very draining soil, formed of stony scree of clay-limestone origin, resulting from the disintegration of the rock, specific to this part of the Alpilles, the vines grow and mingle with the surrounding scrubland in a harmonious balance.
The persistent Mistral wind promotes good health and the exchange of aromas.
