The Chon family started working in Burgundy vineyards at the end of 17th century. It had been recorded that after the dreadful frost of 1709 destroying a large chunk of the French vineyards, Mathurin Chon left his village for ‘la Cote Atlantique’ and settled in the Nantes area at St. Julien de Concelles. There he started producing Muscadet from the Burgundian Melon grapevine. Three centuries fast forward, and the family owns 60 ha of vines on granite and schist soils and uses the modern techniques in wine production. Located 12 km (7.5 miles) east of Nantes, the Château de la Jousselinière is a quality center of Nantes winemaking. Furthermore, organic and biodynamic approaches are being seriously considered.
