About the producer
Le Masse are a biodynamic producer. The family bought the farm in 1950s and have been living and working on it ever since. They say “The passion for our territory has given birth to a project that is based on the practices and principles of biodynamic agriculture, not only as a method to cultivate and produce but also as a way of living and supporting in harmony the environment.
We consider ourselves artisans and that is why every phase of the process is as manual as possible, from the harvesting of the grapes to the pressing in the cellar (without the use of pumps during the entire period of fermentation). In the vinification process we do not use selected yeasts, enzymes or bacteria and no type of aromatic additives. The respect of the natural processes of transformation ensures the birth of a wine which is a true expression of its territory.”
