Winery Profile

Mas des Cabres is a Languedoc family domaine dating back to 1724, situated between Nimes and Montpellier, near the foothills of the Cevennes mountains, just north of Pic St Loup. The name Mas des Cabres comes from the name of the lieu-dit where the vineyard is situated: goats used to be bred in this area in the 18th century. In 2003, Nathalie and Florent Boutin and family decided to bottle their own unique wines that reflect the Languedoc terroir. Their philosophy is minimal intervention from the vines to the cellar to allow the wines express their true nature. The winery is certified sustainable by Terra Vitis, an organization originally formed by growers in Beaujolais which takes into account the work in both the vineyard and the winery. No herbicides or insecticides are used, cover crops are kept between rows, and traditional biodiversity is encouraged.


These are everyday killer value wines, made simply and basically that are increasingly harder to find. A must try! – Josh Adler, Paris Wine Company
