It is since 1734, in the centre of the Loire Valley, in the vineyard of Muscadet, that our estate is located. In 1914, our barrel cellar was built, a real avant-garde construction for the time, and it was not until 1947 that the first bottling took place on the estate.
Trained by his father André, Philippe Ménard became a partner on the farm in 1988 after starting as a family helper on the farm in 1983. In 1991 Thierry, his brother, joined him for a new development of the Domaine Ménard-Gabarit. For them, a passion for wine is something natural that is part of their way of life and their history. Indeed, most of their childhood memories are linked to the stages of the vineyard and it is an omnipresent subject during their family reunions. François joins the team in April 2019 for new adventures: "Thanks to the experience handed down from generation to generation and to technical progress, we make our wines with passion, seriousness and professionalism".
Our motivation is to make unique wines. Our wines are carefully vinified for the sole purpose of creating pleasure during tasting. Our wines are made to provide a moment of happiness to share with friends. With our wines, live real gourmet moments, intense but also refined! The wine that most resembles us is naturally Muscadet. We offer two reference vintages: the Monnières-Saint Fiacre and the Ambroisie vendanges passerillées. A winegrower is a passer-by of memory of our terroirs. Each generation cultivates, shapes and improves the wines, according to its sensitivity and know-how. Today's epicurean wishes first of all to please himself... Our wines are easy to taste, with no need for special knowledge. Our wines enjoy an excellent value for money, making them affordable for everyone. The freshness of the Muscadets 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 makes us travel is simply to make quality wine, and we work conscientiously to that end. We follow our line, free to each one to follow the line he or she wants.
