The Family Run Estate of Domaine de la Coche
Domaine de la Coche is located in the heart of the Pays de Retz, in the southwest of Nantes and 20 km from the Atlantic Ocean. Since 2000, Emmanuel and Laurent Guitteny own and run the winery, where in their work they combine the family wine traditions with the latest techniques in wine production.
The Winery and Their Terrain
Domaine de la Coche covers an area of 30 hectares and has several different types of soil. The grapes here are naturally ripe and healthy due to the oceanic breezes and sweetness levels are due to rich and ripe terroir. The sandy-gravelly soils contain small white pebbles that give a reverberation of the heat and the light on the grapes for perfect maturity. Shale soils leave the roots deep down that follows the cracks of the rock to recover the mineral salts and trace elements. The terroirs of gneiss bring an original mineral richness to the wines. The sandy clay soil is perfect for the rapid ripening of the grapes.
