Domaine Paul Mas - from Auguste to Jean-Claude
In 1892, Auguste, Paul's grandfather, bought the first 9 hectares of vines near Montagnac. His son Raymond expanded this to 24 hectares in 1934. The history of Paul Mas starts in the Château of the same name in Pézenas, not far from the city of Montpellier. The Château was a remnant of the Domaine de Conas, which was divided up in the course of the French Revolution.
The château remained together with a mill and 27 hectares of land, which Raymond acquired in 1954. His son and namesake Paul expanded the vineyard once again, to 120 hectares, before Jean-Claude, Paul's son, took over 35 hectares from his father in 1987. Thirteen years later, he finally founded the Domaine Paul Mas.
