In need of replenishing our stocks we decided to head west and collect our order from Jérémie Mourat, based in Mareuil-sur-Lay in the heart of Fiefs Vendéens. This appellation, which was granted in 2011 (it was a VDQS region beforehand), is one of the Loire’s lesser known names. All the more interesting for that, it produces a wide range of wine styles from a varied pallet of grape varieties. Whites from Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, rosés from Grolleau Gris and Pinot Noir, reds from Gamay, Pinot Noir and Negrette.

It was like hanging out with two friends who just happened to know a lot about wine.
The whole day was fabulous … had a great time and came away much better informed about the region and its wines.
