The modern-day definition of sustainable living describes a person’s attempt to reduce the use of natural resources.
It seems like an easy thing to do. In principle it certainly is, but for most the additional cost of living green can come with a hefty price tag. This is especially true for those who are seeking a great wine. But what if there was a way to have it all? To have a perfect wine that is affordable and good for the planet does exist.
On Earth Day, a virtual wine tasting with Proprietor & Chief Winemaker Jean Claude Mas proved just that. Leading an online virtual session he transported guests to his winery in the picturesque South of France called Côté Mas. It is here that his line features green practices and overall love for all things in his environment.
“Understanding ancestral traditions and mastering modern technology is what has enabled us to extract the quintessence of our vineyards,” stated the master winemaker during the tasting. “All of that is in total harmony with our land, which is a perfect area for a perfect lifestyle. We have climate, the landscape, and the colors.”
The delightful tasting session highlighted: Côté Mas Rose Aurore, Côté Mas Sauvignon Vermentino; Côté Mas Syrah Grenache; Côté Mas Cremant de Limoux Brut, and Côté Mas Cremant de Limoux Rose Brut.
During the discussion, the passion for the Languedoc that drives Jean-Claude was spoken of and reflected on the delightful expressions that guests discovered in each glass. It was as he called it a time to understand the ‘Luxe Rural’ that the winery produces.
Since taking the helm of his family’s winery in 2000, he has prioritized sourcing the highest quality grapes to craft wines of authenticity and refinement. On the grounds, 20 percent of the estate vineyard is farmed organically; the rest is farmed using sustainable practices, certified under Terra Vitis.
And, what makes this all incredibly appealing is the price points. As we head to summer months there is something for everyone and every occasion that is affordable with listings.
