Jo Landron is a man whose modesty is only matched by his mustache. Reticent to accept praise for his expressive Muscadets, he credits the diversity of the domaine’s terroirs, situated on the upper slopes of the Sèvre River near Nantes. Since 1990, after taking the reins from his father, Jo has expanded the family holdings from 26 to 50 hectares of vineyards. His approach to viticulture is the result of an ongoing philosophical journey, which began in 1999 with the labor-intensive commitment of organic conversion, eventually earning certification from EcoCert in 2002. By 2005, with the guidance of consultant Pierre Masson, Jo and his team began implementing biodynamic practices and became certified in 2011. Over time, the treatments applied to the vines clearly contributed to an increased balance and liveliness in the wines. A strong awakening occurred; the Muscadets became not only an expression of grape and soil, but a deeper reflection of the place where they are grown.

Landron family vineyards are located on the upper slopes of the Sèvre River near Nantes. 43 hectares are dedicated to Melon de Bourgogne, and an additional seven hectares are planted to Folle Blanche, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Montils, which make up the blend for the crisp, sparkling Atmosphères.
