and the sloping vineyard is
particularly well exposed to

Domaine aux Moines
vineyard offers the best,
thanks to its exceptional
location and exposition
 
 
There is a micro-climate at the Domaine,
thanks to its privilege orientation and ideal
sunny location, sheltered from northerly wind
and close to river La Loire that forms a huge
water reservoir, enabling temperature
regulation, neither too low in winter,
nor too high in summer, and under
the nearby Atlantic ocean influence,
with no frost most of springs,
that allows our vineyard those ideal
growing circumstances.

  Domaine aux Moines - Savennieres - Chenin The estate is located on a schist soil,on the side of the Brittany hills which origins go back to the primary era.
There has been a strong volcanic activity that left its trace in a ground in which one can observe phtanite, riolite and spiolite which provide a great complexity of soils, giving wines that we produce at
Domaine aux Moines,
their typical character. 
 
 
We will be happy to welcome you and show you around the Domaine aux Moines
