Chateau de la Grange, producer of “La Berriere” is situated 22 miles south of Nantes in the Cotes de Grandlieu AOC near the lake, 'Lac de Grand Lieu' which has an impact on the climate of the 123 acre vineyard. Not far from the Atlantic Ocean the maritime influence is notable and helps, together with the lake, to mature the grapes earlier than the rest of the Muscadet area. The famed Goulaine family took over the property in 1777 but the first vines were planted sometime in the 15th century. Now Baudouin Goulaine and his son Victor run the property, always focused on the vines and making truly delicious wines.
