Le Clos de la Meslerie

In a previous life, Peter Hahn used to juggle with numbers and followed the stock exchange in Sydney. Far away from any vineyard. Passionate about wines, he naturally turned his attention into making his own.

The Loire Valley is often a asylum for those who leave it all for the love of wine.
Without any qualification in wine, he first hd to take his professionnal license in viticulture and oenology, and passed it in 2005.
