Between Loire and farmland, a lush and rolling landscape is revealed in the detours of plateaus and hills throughout the seasons.
The Vineyards of Nantes is the cradle of the Muscadet Sèvre and Maine appellation, introduced during the seventeenth century from a unique grape variety, the" Burgundy melon."
The vineyard is also a water territory, with the Sèvre Nantaise River, the Loire Valley, and the Goulaine wetlands that offer a formidable mosaic of natural environments and a great diversity of species. You will visit an authentic wine estate where you will taste different wines. Later, you will have time to explore the Château de Goulaine, the residence of the same family for a thousand years,
Since 1913, it has been a "historical monument of France," one of the symbols of the city of Nantes. Built-in tufa stone, the castle is an excellent example of a 15th-century renaissance style and was the first castle ever made in this valley.
Inside, you can also visit a butterfly aviary, the LU Museum displaying the art and history of local biscuit brand Le Petit Beurre, and the oldest commercial vineyards in the world.
