Features of the Local Climate at Mas Baux Estate

The twelve hectares of vineyards of the Mas Baux estate possess exceptionally good soils. The success of Mas Baux wines is due to a unique combination of different factors. The Mediterranean Sea, the marine winds, the warmth of the sun and the rocky landscape all play their important role in these beautiful wines. The climate is dry and hot, and the sun shines on the Mas Baux vines on average 300 days a year.

The Journey to Becoming a Winery

Serge Baux has owned this estate between Perpignan and Canet-en-Roussillon since 1997. He was 50 years old when he bought it after a long career in the industrial materials field. When he purchased the land, the estate was in really bad condition. However, Serge recognized the quality of the terroir and managed to turn it to the fertile land and no runs the winery with his wife Marie-Pierre. On average, the vines are 25 years old as Serge Baux replanted a lot of vines to boost his wine production upon purchase of the estate. The estate produces approximately 35,000 bottles a year and two-thirds of which is exported. To ensure the quality, the winemaking team at Mas Baux concentrate on low yields with each vine producing no more than one bottle of fruit. Mas Baux became fully certified organic in 2009 and continues to cultivate healthy vines in the south of France.
