CHAI DU VIGNOBLE MARCHAIS

It all began in the 1950s, in Loroux-Bottereau in the heart of the Muscadet, Rogatien Marchais, fascinated by the vineyard, invested in a small plot of vines...
A passion for the vine that was quickly passed on to his youngest son, Philippe, who took over the estate in the 80s.
Philippe enlarged the family vineyard and extended it across the Loire to Thouaré and then to Mauves-sur-Loire. Using sustainable methods of agriculture, he developed the property with the idea of producing rich and diversified wines in AOC du Nantais, Coteaux d'Ancenis, IGP du Val de Loire and Vins de France.
Philippe likes to share his passion and to make people discover his profession. Accompanied by his elder brother, Jean-Claude, the two brothers set out to create a winery in Thouaré-sur-Loire, with the aim of creating a place of exchange and sharing around their common passion, wine.

THINGS TO DO

Activités
La Nuit en tonneau est un concept créé par la fédération des vignerons indépendants des Pays de la Loire. Le Vignoble Marchais est le premier vignoble à le développer. Le principe : une immersion totale chez le vigneron, découvrir la vigne au clair de lune. Une bulle de bien être en pleine nature pour découvrir une production de terroir.
