Bonnet-Huteau is a family-owned winery located in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation in the Loire Valley of France. The winery was founded in 1920 and is now run by the fourth generation of the Bonnet-Huteau family. The estate covers 37 hectares of vineyards planted with Melon de Bourgogne, the grape variety used to produce Muscadet wines.
The winery is committed to sustainable farming practices and uses only natural treatments in the vineyards. The grapes are hand-harvested and carefully sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit is used in the winemaking process.
Bonnet-Huteau produces a range of Muscadet wines, including their flagship wine, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie, which is aged on the lees for several months to develop a rich, complex flavor. They also produce single-vineyard Muscadet wines, such as Les Gautronnières and Les Dabinières, which showcase the unique terroir of each vineyard.
In addition to Muscadet, Bonnet-Huteau also produces a small amount of red and rosé wines from Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir grapes. The winery's commitment to quality and sustainability has earned them a reputation as one of the top producers in the Muscadet region.
