Vinification like the reds gives the wine a characteristic orange hue and aromas between bitterness, fine tannins and fruit. Ginger the hair color or the vegetable, fits well with the spirit of this wine. And the label’s red hen is a nod to the farm.

Laurent took over his family farm in 1999 with 33ha of vines, 23ha of meadow and 16ha of lavenders. He decided right away to farm organically and got his certification in 2004. His passion for wine lead him to create his own winery and this is how Mas Théo was born in 2005.
