It is in the heart of the former stone quarries that Laurent Clapier, smallholding winemaker, welcomes you and invites you to share in his enthusiasm by discovering along an educational circuit the secrets of biodynamics involved in working with vines and wine, but also lavender
The field of MAS THEO (named after the great grandfather Gabriel THEOLAS) comprises 72 hectares of family heritage.The parcellaire is distributed with 30 hectares of vines on the most qualitative terroirs of Roussas to St Restitut in Drôme Provençale in the middle of the Rhone valley.The rest of the estate is devoted to hay to exchange with farmers for manure, and lavender to develop essential oil.
The organic culture is in the spirit of the estate from the beginning with a realization by the organic certification since 2004. But that being only the base, Laurent CLAPIER turned to the biodynamic for a philosophy more in adequacy with his vision of the agricultural world. The Demeter certification started in 2011. The goal is to obtain the most expressive wines possible, revealing their terroirs and the most natural ones by only developing them with healthy grapes.
All these steps were amplified by the acquisition in 2012 of an old stone quarry : LES CAVES CATHÉDRALES.. This local troglodyte, natural and ideal place for storage has revealed the living wines of Mas Theo.
