Fine French Wine
Wine has always been a huge part of French culture, the breathtaking scenery of the Cote D’Azur and a large glass go hand in hand. It can be enjoyed as part of a relaxing evening, a social event with friends or an accompaniment to a meal; but have you ever wondered what it would be like to create your own wine for one of these occasions?
MasterGrape provides the gateway to creating your own versions of the renowned Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon red wine blends. Young entrepreneur Ryan O’Donnell runs the O’Vineyards with his parents in Carbardes AOC within the Languedoc – Roussillon wine region of Southern France and is responsible for this DIY winery.
The family has specialised in making red wines on their 17 hectare vineyard since 2004. They create an infusion of original flavours by taking inspiration from the neighbouring Atlantic and Mediterranean areas.
This network of vineyards and wineries in the South of France allows you to custom-produce your own brand of wine in the amount, style and price range of your preference. It costs between 1,500 and 10,000 Euros to make the wine depending on the quantity you desire.
