La Frémoire

30.08.2021 - 26.09.2021

Enjoy a lobster and muscadet day on the banks of the Sèvre Nantaise.

4th edition of Un Homard à la Frémoire

Overlooking the Sèvre Nantaise river and the Vertou racecourse, the Château de La Frémoire is a 19th century "Folie Nantaise" with its English-style park. The château was acquired in the 1980s by the wine industry, which currently houses its business premises there.

The exterior of the Château de la Frémoire, a private property and headquarters of the Nantes Wine Federation, is open exclusively every weekend from June 27th to September 27th for the fourth edition of the "Un Homard à la Frémoire" event.

From the Chaussée des Moines, a walk along the Sèvre Nantaise leads to the hippodrome, where a chain ferry (designed and built by the Marlo shipyard) allows you to cross the river in a fun way. Paths in the park lead to the back of the castle.

At the counter, the team warmly welcomes you for a proposed Nantes AOC wine bar, but also to help you discover the vineyard, its terroirs and its wines. As an accompaniment, enjoy the cuisine of chef Jean-Camille GOBET (La Bonne Recette) around the signature dish: lobster, but also aperitif platters, shellfish and sweet proposals that magnify the aromatic and iodized wines of Nantes.

The meadow and the castle's porch are home to the furniture and colourful installations of the scenographic architects. Even so: platforms, large tables, reinvented deckchairs... Relaxation, contemplation and gourmandise.
