In the Ménard-Gaborit family, being a winegrower is much more than a profession... it is a way of life. Every day, every season that passes, binds us a little more to this extraordinary plant that is the vine. Long before us and since 1734, our parents and great grandparents have taught us this wisdom necessary for working the land. Today we work the soil, we "listen to our vines", in an organic farming approach.Lire plus Learn more
It is in the heart of the Loire Valley, in the Muscadet vineyard, that our estate has been established since 1734. In 1914, our barrel cellar was built, a real avant-garde building for the time. Then in 1947, they were the first bottled on the estate.
Trained by his father André, Philippe Ménard became a partner on the farm in 1988 after starting as a family assistant in the farm in 1983. It was in 1991 that Thierry, his brother, joined him for a new evolution of the Domaine Ménard-Gabarit. For them, the passion for wine is something natural and part of their way of life and history. Indeed, many of their childhood memories are linked to the stages of the vine and it is an omnipresent subject at their family meetings:"With the experience passed down from generation to generation and technical progress, we make our wines with passion, seriousness and professionalism."
"Our motivation: to make unique wines. Our wines are carefully vinified for a single purpose: to create a real pleasure during the tasting and to give you a moment of happiness to share with friends. With our wines, experience real gourmet and refined moments!" The wine that most closely resembles us is quite naturally Muscadet with two reference vintages: Monnières-Saint Fiacre and Ambroisie vendanges passerillées:"A winegrower is a passer-by of memory of our terroirs. Each generation cultivates, shapes and improves wines, according to its sensitivity and know-how. Today's epicurean first wants to indulge himself.... Our wines are easy to taste, without any special knowledge required. Their good price-quality ratio makes them affordable for everyone. The freshness of the Nutmeg makes these wines an ideal companion for a meal with friends. The complexity of the Crus Communaux, wines of gastronomy, offers a very interesting aptitude for ageing." What transports us is to make quality wine, we work for this purpose in conscience. We follow our line, everyone is free to follow the line they hear.
