Between Loire and farmland, a green and nuanced landscape through the seasons is revealed in the detours of plateaus and hills. From these vines come the Muscadet, emblematic of the vineyards of Nantes.

Muscadet wine, a flagship

The Vineyards of Nantes is the cradle of the Muscadet Sèvre and Maine designation, named after the two rivers running through it. It is the largest single-varietal white vineyard in France.

Muscadet has been introduced in the Vineyards of Nantes during the seventeenth century from a unique grape variety , the ” Burgundy melon”.

The « sur Lie » vinification process is unique. It allows to raise the wine on its yeast deposits in order to draw the best aroma and a fine bead-like sparkling sensation « le perlant »

Exceptional local wines

Since  2011, the vineyard is in the process of recognizing local vintages. These Muscadet of high expression, produced on a specific soil and long elevated, bear names evocative of their terroir of origin.
Gorges, Clisson, Le Pallet are the first three local wines officially recognized as a PDO. Other designations are in progress : Mouzillon-Tillières, Monnières-Saint-Fiacre, Château-Thébaud and Vallet…

The winegrowers welcome warmly you all year round. Many activities around wine are proposed to allow you to discover the vineyard and help you to discover the secrets of Muscadets..
