Les Domaines Paul Mas has added another estate to its growing wine business and unveiled plans to extend to its portfolio by a further 200 hectares in 2015.

The South of France-based producer has acquired the Domaine de Silène de Peyral, which has 24 hectares of vineyards and is situated in the Hérault département of the Languedoc region.

The estate has been acquired from the Skalli family, but the value of the transaction has not been disclosed.

Jean-Paul Mas, Les Domaines Paul Mas's owner, said he is looking to produce "a top quality Languedoc wine with a vintage of 10 000 bottles." The estate currently turns out Coteaux du Languedoc and Grès de Montpellier appellations.

Mas also confirmed that he was looking to expand the group's wine estates in the Languedoc region by a further 200 hectares this year.

In November, Domaines Paul Mas acquired Château Crès Ricards in Languedoc taking the group's total wine-growing area to 440 hectares of vineyards spread over eight estates.
