The Domaine

The Domaine Vinet is a family winery located in the Val de Loire, near the Atlantic ocean, in Nantes’ vineyards. It has been created in 1948 by Gustave Vinet with 4ha of vines. It has grown step by step and in 1981 his son Gérard took back the domain, of 8 ha, and continues perpetuating the family dynamism. His brother, Daniel, joined him in 1985 and so did his wife, Laurence, in 1990.

Nowadays, Laurence & Gérard are exploiting 55 ha of vines on two different lands, La Haye Fouassière and Château Thébaud in the very heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation.

Our works’ philosophy is based first of all on the quality of our soils, we adapt our work to the wine plot, according different to terroirs. So that, each of our wine develops its identity and spirit. Moreover, we are working in an environmental logic, which daily means practicing a controlled natural grass cover, work of the soil, in a reasoned agriculture method.

Our know-how and experience allow us to mix tradition and modern techniques concerning the work done in the vines and in the cellar. The bottling process is done internally at the domain, the bottles are then stored in proper conditioned cellars.

We export 90% of our wines worldwide: to Europe, to the United States and to Asia. We also sell 10% of our production in France to individuals, wine merchants and restaurants.

Our work is rigorous and the passion for our job allows us to offer a unique range of Muscadet.

OUR WINERY

DSCF2827

Located 15km to the south of Nantes, the lands of La Haye-Fouassière and Château Thébaud are in the historical heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Appellation AOC. The vineyard of 55 Ha is on the slopes of the Sèvre and the Maine, the two rivers that give their name to the appellation of origin.

OUR GRAPE

DSCF2837

We cultivate our unique grape, the Melon de Bourgogne (100 %) on a soil of schist, micaschist, gneiss and amphibolites. The oceanic climate and the mix of rocks make it a land suitable for the production of fresh, balanced and aromatic Muscadet with a good ageing potential.

OUR KNOW-HOW

DSCF3042

Our way of cultivating the wine, in a sustainable way, is validated by a certification “Terra Vitis”. Our work is serious, rigorous and done with a careful attention in the vine as well as in the cellar, from the wine-making to the preparation of the order. The passion for our job is present in all our vintages and assure us to have loyal customers in France and abroad.

"Le vin est le miroir du vigneron."

The advice of the winemaker

  • Stock your bottles laying down, protected from light and at constant temperature.
  • For the old vintages, go out and uncork your bottle 1/2 hour before serving.
  • During a meal, start with young wines, then continue with the old vintages.
