Valentin's father, Jean-Bernard Moindrot, settled at Domaine de Loye in 1970. It is a family tradition that led him to develop the vineyard of his grandfather, a miller. Since his return, the Loire winemaker has done everything possible to respect the saying: "A healthy vineyard is the assurance of a quality wine". In addition, the slopes have been grassed over to limit the vigour of the vines and erosion.
In recent years, there has been a drop in yields, followed by a maturing of the plots. At the Domaine de Loye, we start harvesting plot by plot, following the evolution of the maturity. In some years, the winemaker and his team carry out green harvesting, if the potential allows it.
"I was born and raised on the estate. So I saw its evolution and its expansion thanks to technological development. I decided to become a winemaker because I wanted to work in contact with nature, which I have been immersed in since I was a child.""We make simple, light, fruity, easy-drinking wines, wines for pleasure, wines for friends without artifice or protocol. We do everything we can to make quality wines and this is reflected in our shared passion."
