Château de Roquefort

- Raimond de Villeneuve

Appellations : IGP Des Bouches du Rhône - Côtes de Provence

 

The land surrounding Chateau de Roquefort has a long and dynamic history. Dating back to celtic-greek times, the house and land has been passed down through generations of aristocrats, nobility and even members of the church, until reaching its current owners, the Villeneuve Flayosc family, descendants of the General Comte of Gardenne, who purchased the estate in 1812.

Despite the fact that Roquefort today is a winery, the château and its grounds have historically been involved in forestry and logging, silkworm breeding and even oxen farming.  

A document dating back to 1811 lists the land and property in detail, and mentions many vineyard plantings and also a 31 meter long vaulted cellar which was constructed in 1734. In 1995, this same cellar was restored and  modern technologies and equipment were installed.

Today, the vineyard covers 24 hectares planted on clay-limestone soils. The grape varieties are the typical and traditional of the region: Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Clairette, Rolle (Vermentino) Ugni.
