Domaine de la Fessardiere has produced organic wine since 1997. Michel Sauvion ,the former winemaker, made this choice in order to increase the quality of its Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine wine and work closer to nature.
In 2014, Jérôme & Emeline met Michel Sauvion, who was eager to transfer all his knowledge to this young new team. They decided to value different parts and typicity of the land and the winery through a new range of Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine wines.
Growing organic vines since 1997, they banned chemicals from the land and use more innovative and natural methods. It also means ploughing the soil according to traditional methods, fertilise with compost and carefully observe vines to prevent pest diseases (e.g. using bug traps), and use natural treatments when necessary copper, plants, clay…). Today all the wines from Domaine de la Fessardière are certified “organic wine” by Ecocert.
