MOURAT VINEYARDS LOIRE MÉRIDIONALE Located on the far south-west of the Loire Valley, tempered by a gentle sea breeze, the A.O.C. Fiefs Vendéens stand out for their originality. Here you will not find any slate-roofed houses or cellars carved in the local stonework. The Vendée already faces south – and its here you will find the Vignobles Mourat nestled in the foothills of the Massif Armoricain.
AOC FIEFS VENDÉENS Mareuil-sur-Lay is situated on an ancient fault-line at the point where three ecosystems meet: the Lucon lowland, the Marais Poitevin and the Bocage Vendéen. The land is composed of schistes and rhyolites, influenced by the Maritime climate. The Vendée benefits from a cosmopolitan vineyard which traditionally combines a mixture of vine varieties from the Loire Valley and the South-West of France.
