MAS MELLET - The winemaker of Gapan
Besides Gapan see all MAS MELLET wines.
In 2002, when Emilie and Brice Bolognini were barely over 20 years old, they decided to take over the Mas Mellet estate in Gallicia in the Gard. At the time, it was 27 hectares of abandoned vines. Regardless of the work to be done, they had their first vintage in 2003.
Very quickly, the evidence of working organically led the couple to reduce the cultivated land to now 16 hectares in production. In the vineyards, manual labor takes precedence and the sheep work during the winter. Their Certification arrived in 2007.
