Domaine du Mas de Rey

Arles

The Domaine du Mas de Rey offers the widest range of rare and local single-variety wines that express the typicity of the Camargue terroir.

Duration1H30
100% Caladoc, 100% Chasan or 100% Marselan from the oldest vines in the world. Discover also the fruity and fresh wines of the Esprit range, and the gourmet and complex wines of the Les Secrets de Cornille range.

In the heart of our Camargue region, the 110 hectares of vines are divided between 2 main terroirs. We have discovered the sandy-silt soils around the Domaine, which are ideal for the production of our oldest Marselan. We have also found parcels on the Crau plateau, an exceptional place where Chardonnay and Syrah are perfectly suited. The stony, clay-limestone soils are ideal for the production of great wines. The Domaine du Mas de Rey is an independent winegrower and has more than fifteen different grape varieties.

The oldest vines are about 30 years old, while others have been planted recently. A young and healthy vineyard which allows us to obtain quality grapes. We grow rare and local grape varieties such as Chasan, Caladoc and Marselan. The oldest Marselan in the world was planted in front of the Domaine. You will taste this indigenous grape variety in each of our red wines, both as a blend and as a single variety. We are interested in new ways of cultivating the vines. In order to respect the environment, we have planted grape varieties that are resistant to vine diseases and require less treatment. One of our recent challenges has been to convert to organic farming in 2020. The Domaine should obtain certification in 2023.
