Family domaines from this classic region.
Long river, lots of vineyards, wide range of quality . . . so where to start? Much as we like some of the more obscure AOC’s (both red and white) the core of our business is working with good family domaines in the classic Loire regions.
For 4 generations, Louis, Michel, Marcel and now Christophe Gadais have produced the very best Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine wines. Produced from grapes grown on the renowned terroirs of Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine, La Haye-Fouassière and Vertou, their Muscadets are harvested, aged and vinified according to the family’s savoir-faire.
