The Couillaud brothers enjoy exploring new avenues. From this reason, they have just devoted 2.5 ha of their estate to an experimental vineyard growing grape varieties not often found in the Nantais vineyards: Viognier, Petit Manseng, Muscat Petit Grain, Sauvignon Gris and Pinot Gris. The wines produced will be distributed under the label “Collection Privée des Frères Couillaud” [Couillaud Brothers’ private collection]
