Mouzillon is a commune in the Loire- Atlantique department in western France. Mouzillon is known as a producer of Muscadet wine as well as a dry biscuit called the ‘Petit Mouzillon’. The two are traditionally consumed together.
Founded in 1922 by Eugène Bretonnière, some family deeds on purchase from 1743 were found in the estate. In 1965 Hardy Edmond takes over the business and transfers it to his son and his wife in 1981.
For them, the secrets of a good wine are inherent to the vines. They truly believed that understanding the earth, its respiration and watching the cycles of the vines give valuable lessons to those who want to harness the art of vinification and wine ageing.
The word of the producer: ‘Our winery succeeded in retaining its original family spirit. Therefore, we choose to run our business in keeping with the Hardy family traditions and culture in order to produce harmonious wines of happiness’.
