Domaine de la Pépière
Domaine de la Pépière is located in the village of Maisdon-sur-Sèvre, about 20 kms south-east of Nantes. Its history as a winery dates from 1984 when Marc Ollivier created the domain. La Pépière comes from the old French word “pépie” which means thirst, due to the very dry and rocky soils of the estate.
Since its creation, Domaine de la Pépière has kept on growing over the years through the purchase of well-targeted plots, often old and situated on outstanding terroirs. Rémi Branger's arrival in 2017 helped the conversion of the domaine to organic farming and Gwénaëlle Croix’s in 2013 to biodynamics.
