The Domaine "la Haute Févrie" lies 18 km south-east of NANTES, right in the middle of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine protected designation of origin. The estate vines grow on the hills overlooking the Sèvre, between Saint-Fiacre and Monnières. They enjoy optimum ripening conditions and the Muscadet they produce is highly expressive of the soil it grew on.
In our quality as wine growers and producers for four generations, we monitor and tend our vine to ensure that it produces the very best grapes. Nowadays, the estate covers 30 hectares of vineyards, all under the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine protected designation of origin.
The estate is broken into several plots, each with a different aspect and on different soil: siliceous clay or gravelly and shallow, all on metamorphic rock (gneiss, orthogneiss and amphibolites), resulting in a range of highly individual “clos”: Le Clos de la Févrie, Les Mauguitonnières, Les Gras moutons (Saint-Fiacre), Le Clos Joubert, Le Moulin de la Gustais, Le Clos du Pégatine and many others.
We are keen to manage our vine along environmentally friendly principles (no chemical fertilizers, with yield control and grape picking entirely by hand), and subscribe to the Terra Vitis method based on a sustainable wine growing approach.
