Mas des Colibris is a biodynamic domaine in the Causse d'Aumelas region of Languedoc run by former professional rugby player Sebastien Galtier. Sebastien has 12 hectares in total, all farmed organically since 1999 and surrounded by olive groves, pine forest and scrubland. Grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and Sebastien uses biodynamic preparations to stimulate the biological life of the soil and strengthen the vine and its natural defences.

L'Escapade is Sebastien's top cuvée from the Grés de Montpellier appellation, a coastal Mediterranean strip of sandstone that combines deep, textured fruit with freshness from proximity to the sea. Aged for 12 months in barrel and several more before release, it's concentrated, spicy, supple and refined.
