Domaine Gadais Père & Fils - Producer of Muscadet
The Estate :
first and foremost
a family history
Le Domaine Gadaisis located in Saint-Fiacre, in the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, appellation within the Loire Valley. In 1952, Louis Gadais sought to bottle and sell his wine, and in doing so, was considered a trailblazer in the field. In 1959, his sons Marcel and Michel began supporting him, and developed the same approach to quality that would ultimately convert a loyal customer base fortheir Muscadet. The estate is spread out over around a hundred plots, all dedicated to the cultivation of Melon de Bourgogne. Favouring a healthy, nature-focused approach to work, Domaine Gadais has also always advocated for sustainable agriculture. The most important thing is what is in the bottle. Which is, needless to say, no shortage of quality. Muscadet lovers, you came to the right place !
Gadais Père et Fils Muscadet also owes the diversity of its wines to its extremely diverse soil. Spread out over more than 50 hectares, the vines benefit from several rock types that will help to produce authentic wines with strong personalities. Between orthogneiss, mica schist, and amphibolite, all of these metamorphic rocks create ideal conditions for growing especially original Melon de Bourgogne. Finally, the sandy structure of our estate is an additional benefit. Natural drainage exists, allowing our vines to take advantage of the best that the subsoil has to offer with no risk of excessive moisture.
For a wineproducer in the Loire, these factors combined are a true blessing, and we have the expertise to take full advantage. We are very well-known suppliers in the region and throughout France. But we want to grow Domaine Gadais Père et Fils and achieve an international standing. This is why our exportation French white wine is another important asset for our family.
For generations, and for more generations to come, Gadais Muscadet is a benchmark that you must try!
