Since his childhood, Donatien Bahuaud had wandered throughout the area’s vineyards, from which he enjoyed watching boats laden with barrels sailing down the Loire River. This pastime led to his vocation. Donatien Bahuaud’s family were clog makers, coopers and grape growers, however, he decided that he would become a winemaker. His ambition was that of restoring Muscadet’s former splendor when it was served at the table of British royalty and appreciated by French aristocrats during the Renaissance. He founded Donatien Bahuaud in 1929 and he traveled throughout the vineyard with his wines in oak vats loaded on a cart.
