    Information about domain Saint-Nicolas

    The story begins in 1960, when Patrice Michon decides to plant some vines in Brem-sur-Mer in the Vendée. 25 years later, he is joined by his two sons, Eric and Thierry Michon. They decide to modernise their winery and start planting other vines in Ile d'Olonne. Since 1995, Domaine Saint-Nicolas has been certified in organics and biodynamics. Th work carried out in the vineyard is very clean, the harvests are manual, and only indigenous yeasts are used. The low yields explain the rarity of Domaine Saint-Nicolas' wines. The domain successfully cultivates a great range of grape varieties, including Chardonnay, Chenin, Grolleau Gris, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Négrette and Gamay. Today, the wines from this domain can be found at the tables of some top-end restaurants.
