Vignobles J. Mourat

DESCRIPTION

The name Mourat is intimately linked to wine: Vignerons and Sauniers on the Ile de Ré until the end of the 19th century, then wine merchants in Sables d’Olonne for three generations; it is in 1974 that Jean Mourat created the vineyard that will become Château Marie du Fou.

Jérémie joined him in 1998 to perpetuate the adventure, while establishing two estates, the Clos Saint-André in 2006 and the Moulin Blanc in 2011.

For more than 10 years, all areas have been grown organically or in organic conversion.

The reputation of Vignobles Mourat is based on our two principal values : global-awareness and remaining true to our cultural roots and heritage.
