The SAUVION house, belonging to brothers Yves and Jean-Ernest, is located in the heart of the Nantes vineyard in Chteau du Clray-Sauvion in Eolie. This chteau belonging to the Sauvion family since 1935 is, with its old vaulted cellars, one of the most ancient properties in the Svre et Maine vineyard. It spreads over 38 hectares. To mark its difference, the Sauvion house, distinguishes itself by proposing Haute Culture de Sauvion, a finely presented range of Muscadet directed to gourmet restaurants, and that express finesse, elegance and style, thus embodying the Sauvion signature. Since the early days of their activity, Yves and Jean-Ernest Sauvion have spared no efforts to ennoble their Muscadet as well as the whole appellation. They export more than 60% of their production in over 80 countries, acting therefore as the ambassadors of the Nantes vineyard. The Muscadet can be found on the most prestigious tables around the world.
