"Arrogant Frog: New world wines full of fruit but with a French attitude. And screwcaps."
Jean-Claude Mas comes from a family with a long tradition of wine-making in southern France, dating back to 1892. Educated at business school in England, he combines French tradition with a new world approach to innovation and commercial enterprise. His wines reflect this philosophy. As well as overseeing the commercial activities of the group, he controls the wine-making. The estates make a wide variety of wines, but they all share one thing in common: the pursuit of excellence.
Three words sum up these wines: fruit, fruit, fruit. The wines are smooth, rich and packed with flavour, but not sweet. They are a French response to the challenge of the New World, proof that the French can make wines to match and even better those produced in other countries, with a marketing savvy to boot. Who says French don’t have a sense of humour?
The Arrogant Frog embodies a way of life, which includes an appreciation of good food, landscape and architecture, culture and sport. And a bottle of delicious wine that can be opened with a twist of the screwcap, which ensures that the wine is always fresh, can be drunk anywhere and, in the unlikely event that all the wine isn’t finished at one sitting, can be preserved for later consumption.
