Joseph Landron


Domaine de la Louveterie & Château la Carizière, Loire Valley


The Landron family has owned the estate for nearly 70 years now. When Joseph Landron took over the domain in 1979, the vineyards were grown classically (using chemicals and pesticides). However, these farming methods almost led to the death of the entire vineyard in 1987 because of a particular herbicide which literally poisoned the plants. In reaction, Joseph immediately banished every chemical and additive from his domain and started to plow the soils in order to regenerate his land. Since then, every parcel has been organically farmed. Today, Jo Landron owns 46 hectares of vines in Nantes’ wine area. 


"Only the respect of the soils and the vines by organic farming allows [the wines] to express their full personality."  - Joseph Landron
