A former agricultural estate of the Ursulines de Beaucaire since the 16 th century, the estate owes its name to the nuns called ‘Mourgues’ in the Provençal language. ‘Grès’ comes from the rounded rocks of the Costières de Nîmes that give our wine their character.


In the courtyard of the estate, the Latin motto on the sundial SINE SOLE NIHIL (Nothing Without Sun) celebrates the Mediterranean climate. It brings optimal ripeness for a naturally rich and balanced wine.

A Beautiful Adventure

“I came back to the family estate in 1990, confident in the potential of the terroir and the prospects of the newly born AOP “Costières de Nîmes”. It was precision in the vineyard coupled with a taste for innovation that led to the bottling of the first wine in 1993. I strive to reveal the purity of the fruit, the freshness, the aromas, the balance between the richness and the minerality of the wine. This original balance contributes to the recognition the estate has received from the press.”

Accompanying me on this adventure marketing our wines is my wife, Anne. Her experience as an urbanist-geographer is one of the reasons for our particular attachment to our landscape and environment. And so, your visit to the estate will be richer still with our nature-oriented approach. The trail that takes you through the vineyards and orchards is interspersed with information markers that allow a perfect understanding of our vintage.


All our actions, be it in the vineyard or the cellar, are guided by our mindfulness of nature, and respect for the terroir and the environment. Our official certification in Organic Agriculture in 2004 corresponds to these convictions. Since 2015, vinificaiton has been carried out without sulphur for more purity and intense fruitiness. A light addition and a very slight filtration during bottling ensures the stability of the wine. May these bottles accompany your delectable moments of conviviality and celebration!
