At the heart of the largest white single-varietal vineyard in France, muscadet-sèvre-et-maine are just like the vineyards of Nantes: wild and noble.

The departure of the VVR walk is from the site of Helfest in Clisson, about twenty minutes from Nantes. You go for a walk in the vines of  Clisson to discover this communal appellation and its vineyard. You will enjoy this hike to discover three wine estates where you can enjoy the wines of the appellation with local dishes.

Itinerary:

1.      
It is in the heart of the vinyard that you make your first break to see the delimitation of Cru Clisson, at the foot of the Butte des Egards. This appellation doesn't has more secrets for the winegrowers guides who will share with you the story of the Cru Clisson.    

2.      
You continue the walk in the vineyards, towards the Brebionnière, to make your first tasting at Domaine Guerin. In the cellar of the estate, you can enjoy wines of the local appellation with homemade bites.

3.      
The vineyard of Clisson also produces excellent muscadet. You can enjoy it during the third stop at Domaine de l'Epinay, at Cyrille and Sylvain Paquereau, who will make you discover their estate.

4.      Before finishing the hike along the Moine river, you make a final stop at the Chateau Vallon des Perrieres at Patrice Heraud, for a Cru Clisson tasting with local specialities.    

All the vine growers, volunteers, craftsmen welcome you to the VVR village which settles on the site of Helfest. Take advantage of this offbeat setting to spend a convivial moment with the vintners of the Cru Clisson appellation. 

On the menu :
  • Food truck and English bus
