In the south of France, near Tresserre and Perpignan, in the foothills of the Pyrenees, there is a country house called the « Mas de las Minyonas » ('young girl' in Catalan). It was built during the XVIII century by ecclesiastics and became the property of Isabelle Raoux's family after the French revolution.
Since then, the property has been passed on through a succession of ten generations. mainly mothers and daughters ensuring the maintenance of the vineyards. That is why men from local villages, working in surrounding fields, noticed the dresses amongst the vines and gave the colloquial name to the property ; « Le Mas de Las Minyonas ».
This charming inspiration lead Isabelle Raoux's grandmother to produce her first bottles here in 1978.
More recently, two wine lovers from Burgundy who were looking for sun and new adventures in wine arrived at the Mas because of its pretty name, one of them staying longer than planned...
Since 1997, Isabelle and Didier Van Ooteghem share the management of the property with unconditional care for the natural balance of the vineyard and the surrounding environment.
The vineyard is looked after by Didier, his precious grapes producing elegant, authentic wines which are vinified by Isabelle.
