After focusing on the wine-making process of American and South African wines, Caroline Bonville has chosen to meet the challenge of wonderful southern wines in Roussillon.
She is invested full-time, between the vineyard work and the maturing of the wines. Roussillon wines, “terroir” wine but especially, woman wines… Full-bodied and well balanced wines with character.
Those expressive wines are produced on a bush pruning system adapted to austere hills swept by the tramontane wind, a wine marker’s valuable ally in the responsible fight against vineyard diseases.
Those wines are characterized by the diversity of the terroir, schist, granite and marl. The various grape varieties such as Grenache, Syrah, carignan for red wines, Grenache grey and white, Maccabeu and Muscat for white wines are contributing to the general harmony.
Mas Karolina’s vineyard encompasses 17 hectares. It is located at the foot of the Pyrenees, in Maury and its immediate surrounding areas. Ideally situated in the heart of the Mediterranean climate, the vines here benefit from constant sun and ideal meteorological conditions, necessary for making grand wines. Planted on red marl soil, granitic and schist, the vines benefit from perhaps the finest bedrock in France, fully contributing to complete ripeness of the grapes.
