Did notice that we have two Muscadet producers?  This is because we believe that in the right farmer’s hands, the volcanic soil around Nantes, France can produce glorious wines worthy of global attention.  We work with Jo Landron of Domaine de la Louvetrie, and Fred Niger and Guy Bossard from Domaine de l’Ecu, currently the only two certified biodynamic estates in Muscadet.

We invite you to meet Jo and Fred in the videos below. In the first, Jo Landron helps you to pronounce the grapes that are grown in his region:


And here, Fred Niger of Domaine de l’Ecu talking about biodynamic farming at his estate. We hope you will share these videos with your staff to help with training.
