rom Wandering in the Vineyards...
Cyril Marès was born in Nîmes, in the South of France. He pretty much grew up in the fields of his father's vineyards and orchards.
He fondly remembers strolling between the vines either perched on his dad's shoulders or on top of his poney.

After years of Agronomy studies, followed by a Master's in Viticulture and Oenology from Montpellier University, Cyril travelled the world before taking over the domaine from his father, Roger Marès. He first went to the USA in 1994 to work at Chalone Vineyard, then to Chile at Bruno Prats', owner of the Château Cos d'Estournel, and finally at Paul Pontallier's property, Château Margaux.  
Experiencing the harvests at these vineyards was rich in discoveries, adventures & encounters. Travelling the World!

After 18 months of military service in Germany and in Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyril returned to Mas des Bressades in 1996. In 1998, his wife Nathalie took over her father's neighboring domaine, Mas Carlot which she works beautifully.

Nathalie and Cyril met through their oenologists, Maryse and Alain Demezon, during the 1996 harvest. Maryse instigated the meeting and they lived happily ever after! They form a great young Provençal family and have four children together.
