The estate is located in the Faugeres appellation in the Languedoc and is situated at 180 metres elevation, overlooking the village of Laurens. It has progressively expanded to its current size of 23 hectares, which has enabled in-depth renovation of new parcels. The Syrah and Mourvedre are double Cordon Royat pruned vines and the Carignan and Grenache are pruned according to the traditional Gobelet method. The vines are planted in ochre, grey or blue sandstone and schist soils, which are slightly acidic and have a fragile structure. This high quality but demanding terroir naturally produces low yields, of around 25 hl/ha. The estate is cultivated sustainably, and is HVE certified, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management. The grapes are hand-harvested.

Thierry Rodriguez, grandson of a winemaker, always dreamt of making his own wines, and in 1997 he bought his first plots of vines in the Faugères appellation. Situated in the foothills of the Cévennes and surrounded by beautiful garrigue, the appellation is renowned for its magnificent schistous soils. Demanding, thorough and a perfectionist, Thierry manages the vineyard with great care and attention. In turn, the vines produce naturally low yields of around 25 hectolitres per hectare, of beautiful, healthy berries that reach optimal maturity - the key to fully expressing the Faugères terroir. Nothing revolutionary here, simply the application of good farming sense and practices that respect the environment; the estate is certified HVE. Mas Gabinèle takes its name after ‘unà gabinelà’ which in Occitan refers to the traditional wine-maker's hut in the vineyards.
