The legend of Vinus, the Heron, started on the Herault River banks, at the foot of Chateau Paul Mas in Pezenas. Languedoc Grands Crus and Grands vins, from our vineyards in Pezenas or Montagnac, at the Nicole Estate, make up this range, which is complemented by varietal wines with distinct character. Chateau Paul Mas is made of 2 Estates: the Castle and a 25-ha vineyard in Conas, near Pezenas, the cellar and a 80-ha vineyard in Nicole, near Montagnac. This is where we produce the cuvees Chateau Paul Mas, Vinus, Vignes de Nicole, Paul mas Estate and Paul Mas. Our labels feature Vinus the heron in front of the Conas castle.

|Fourth-generation vintner Jean-Claude Mas has blazed the trail for premium winemaking in the Languedoc region. Since taking the helm of the Mas family’s centuries-old estate in 2000, his driving mission has been to use only premium quality grapes to craft superior wines with a modern, New World flair. Beginning with the original 86-acre estate, he has since grown the winery to a 1000-acre enterprise with a commitment to sustainable viticulture; he also contracts with 80 growers that collectively farm nearly 2000 acres, making Domaines Paul Mas one of the Languedoc’s most influential wineries. Above all, Jean-Claude strives to make wines with authenticity and refinement, the end result of which is a family of magnificently charming wines that burst with personality and express their unique terroir.
