Fief aux Dames is a family vineyard in Monnières in the heart of the historic Nantes vineyard. The BRAUD family has been running the vineyard over five generations for nearly a century. They mainly produce "Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie". The estate produces dry white wines from a single grape variety: the Melon de Bourgogne. The Muscadet appellation was certified AOC in 1937. They produce several different vintages that reflect the true character of their different terroirs: selections of specific parcels (Monnières St Fiacre), blended vintages (Tradition), maturing in oak barrels, etc. The estate is Terra Vitis certified, an alternative to ecocert (Bio) certification.
