Nantes, a gastronomic city

Its nearness with surrounding vineyards makes Nantes a capital of Muscadet wine – a metropolis that celebrates gastronomy.

The « Tables de Nantes » is a great example of friendly and greedy meeting between professionals and the general public. The movement “I love muscadet” is a second illustration. The badge points out that the restaurant offers at least 5 Muscadet on its wine list. In 2021, we reference about sixty restaurants with the label “I love Muscadet”.
