Domaine du Landreau is growing some of the most sought after Cabernet Franc in the region of the Loire Valley. Located in the sub-region of Val du Layon, 12 acres of Cabernet Franc vines are cultivated for the productionof Volage rose. The vines average at 30 years of age and sit at 180 ft of elevation with a southwest exposure.
Volage offers a sparkling rose made in the style of a “Method Traditionnelle” Champagne. This classic production offers greater flavor and complexity than a less expensive Charmat Method wine. The name Volage in French means “changeant,” “volatile,” “fickle,” — it expresses the idea of freedom. Volage sources from Domaine du Landreau in the Loire Valley to provide Cabernet Franc grapes of the highest quality and create a “grower Cremant” style wine.
