Domaine Aubaï Mema

Outside Domaine Aubai Mema

Built in 1936, Cave Aubai Mema, former wine cooperative in the medieval village of Aubais, stands guard at the foot of the castle of the former marquis.

"Aubais is a medieval village located between Montpellier and Nimes in France's Languedoc region. Back when the villagers spoke Provençal, they were proud to say that they were from Aubais itself, 'd'Aubaï méma', rather than simply the general area, and in 2002, I adopted the expression for my new domaine with equal pride.

My aim is to create real 'vins de terroir' that explore what each grape variety can express in terms of fruit imprinted with the character of their surroundings, a terroir of limestone and clay based on rock formations dating back 93 million years. Shielded from the worst of the weather by wooded hills and garrigue, the 50 year old carignan and grenache vines, and more recently planted syrah, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and viognier, have been cultivated organically from the outset.

Real Wine, Nature’s Way... from Aubais itself!"
