During the summer of 2023, building work will be taking place at the château to transform it into a visitor centre for discovering the AOC wines known as Vins de Nantes.
Through an immersive visitor experience, designed by the Quand même architecture and scenographic design firm to showcase the character-defining features of muscadet (melon B. grape, mosaic of terroirs, ageing on lees), the ground floor of this mansion house in Vertou overlooking the Sèvre Nantaise river, will house a large wine bar, a restaurant, a visitor exhibition area and a professional kitchen.
Opening in 2024
The venue is expected to open in 2024 for the start of le Voyage à Nantes summer season with a wine bar serving the AOC wines of the Nantes vineyards along with food and wine pairings. The organisation of tastings ath other times of the year is also planned, and this premium venue will be available for privatisation for corporate events. As a direct result of the works, which are scheduled to last a year, the Frémoire site with its summer event will be exceptionally closed in 2023.
The Vins de Nantes producers invite the public to visit their redeveloped centre at the superb Château de la Frémoire from 2024, to experience a “Journey into muscadet”.
