Domaine de la Fessardiere
The estate is located in Vallet in the west of Loire Valley Wine 20 minutes from the city of Nantes and 1 hour from Atlantic Ocean.
Producing wine here is a tradition since the XVI century as this terroir is recognized for its good quality of soil and environment. 80% of the vines are planted on hills on siliceous-clay very stony but not very deep soil. All of their vines are Melon de Bourgogne, an iconic grape variety and typical from the appellation Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine.
To produce the best wine in the most natural way, they innovate everyday and apply new techniques (bugs trap, plant decoction, natural citrus products…) taking into account the soil, climate and life of the land.
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 to work closer to nature. In 2014, Jérôme & Emeline met Michel Sauvion. As wine lovers, Jérôme and Emeline were seduced by the wine and Michel’s knowhow.
They have since decided to value different part and typicity of the land and the winery through a new range of Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine wines.
