Domain Vineyard Michelle Reddy has 40 hectares and is called La Muener. He belongs to the family Redd for the past six generations and is located in the center of Pouilly sur Loire. The main part is on the southern slopes, which are elevations of the Loire. They have a rich limestone-clay soil and allow fine elegant wines. The rest of the vineyard is located on the slopes of Saint Andelain and has a clay-siliceous soil. This character of the soil gives the wine a special taste.
Sam Michael Redd decided to follow in the footsteps of their ancestors and became a winemaker. In the middle of the XX century he and his wife was able to expand the estate, as was a strong and stubborn man. He cleaned all the vineyards and replant vines all over again. Later, he was able to build and a new cellar, which truly glorified their family and wine cellar was named La Moynerie. Thanks to these innovations, the success of the company has acquired an international character. More after a while the parents could join their son Thierry, who was also interested in continuing the family tradition. He grew up in an amazing and addictive world of vineyards and wine, so brought a lot of new ideas and solutions in the family business. Now he is the current owner of the vineyard Redd, and his sons also intend in the future to continue the family business.
