Almost a stone’s throw from the Atlantic coast, South-west of the city of Nantes in the Loire Valley, is the Domaine Saint Nicolas winery. Consisting of 40 hectares this winery has been practising biodynamic agriculture since 1995. In fact, Thiery Michon was the first winemaker in the Fiefs Vendéens appellation to do so. The vines are all exposed to the south-west or south-east and Thiery makes fruity and refreshing wines as well as ones with finesse and complexity that age well. The clay and siliceous rock of the terroir, as well as the sea breeze, give a unique saline taste to the wines. One of the grapes farmed here is more at home in south-west France: négrette. However, Pinot Noir, chardonnay, chenin blanc, groslot gris, cabernet franc and gamay are also farmed, and all grapevines are cultivated to produce very low yields in order to concentrate flavours.
