Mas des Cabres is a Languedoc family domaine dating back to 1724, situated between Nimes and Montpellier, near the foothills of the Cevennes mountains. The name Mas des Cabres comes from the name of the lieu-dit where the vineyard is situated: goats used to be breeded 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. Grown in limestone and red clay soil, their philosophy is minimal intervention- from the vines to the chai- to let the wines express their true nature. The winery is certified sustainable by Terra Vitis, which takes into account the work in both the vineyard and the winery.
