Mas de Cadenet - Famille Negrel
The history of the Mas de Cadenet starts in 1813 when the Negrel Family acquires the Estate. The Mas de Cadenet is emblematic of Provence. It is a longstanding "Love Story" between a family and its land. Today Guy Negrel runs the Estate with the help of his children Maud and Matthieu Negrel. The Mas de Cadenet is located in a breathtaking landscape at the bottom of the Sainte Victoire Mountain, near Aix-en-Provence. This scenery was a never ending inspiration for the Master of Impressionism, Paul Cézanne. So we could say that the "pictureperfect" Estate is like a painting! The vineyard is on a south facing plateau, 250 meters above sea level. The Mas de Cadenet produces 60% of rosé wines, 30% of red wines and 10% of white wines in AOP Côtes de Provence - Sainte Victoire. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard are Rolle, Syrah, Grenache,Cinsault and Cabernet-Sauvignon. The Family strongly believes that organic farming is the best way to express the minerality and the nuances of the terroir. It is also an ethic based on the « Respect » of the work accomplished by the ancestors and on the "Love" for future generations who will inherit this land.
