A Family History for 4 Generations.
Owner – Harvesting & Breeder
The Vellas Vineyards, a family story that began 4 generations ago in the heart of the Languedoc appellations.
The main family property, the Mas du Pont Estate, the center of our activities, is a place of culture and traditions, around the vineyard, wine, gastronomy and the bulls. It is located in the towns of Teyran and Crès, near Montpellier, between Pic St Loup and the Mediterranean Sea. On the estate you can discover the vineyard, the tasting cellar, the Vellas Manade with the bulls of the Camargue, a theater, a gourmet restaurant, an equestrian center, gites and a large room for your events…
At all times, our family has maintained a fusional relationship between the agricultural trades – with over 1000 hectares of cereals, pasture and olive groves, a breeding of 500 bulls and horses from the Camargue – and the Vineyard – with A vineyard of 120 hectares.
Respect for our land and the environment is part of our way of life. That’s why the majority of our vineyards are organic.
Our vineyards, with an area of 120 hectares, are spread over 5 properties.
