In the Vendée, the plots of the Mourat vineyard reveal the special characteristics of the terroir in an original way and offer visitors the chance to picnic in a special setting.
Close to La Roche-sur-Yon, the Mourat family has been cultivating Fiefs Vendéens vines since 1880. Proud of his terroir, Jérémie Mourat has opened the 127-hectare family-run organic operation to wine lovers, who can explore the vineyard in an electric car. Each vehicle seats 4 people so a maximum of 12 can enjoy the trip by hiring all 3 cars!
Armed with a tablet computer, visitors set off for an entirely self-contained day of discovery. As they drive the 36 km route they encounter points of interest and learn about the special characteristics of the vineyard and its grape varieties. Lunch is a picnic enjoyed in the shade of the White Windmill, surrounded by 12 hectares of vines.
The culmination of this invigorating trip is a tasting of five of the Mourat estate’s wines: Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Négrette, Chardonnay and Chenin.
