CHÂTEAU ROC DU PIN

The story of my family on Château Roc du Pin’s land goes back to more than five generations! The estate got its name from the land’s name “le Pin” (meaning pine in French) and from the massive rock standing next to our cellar; like a dolmen it lasts through the ages, unchanging and delineating our farm’s entrance. Since I arrived at the estate in 2015, I have started a reorganization of the vineyard: uprooting, replanting, purchasing vines, farming, modernizing the cellar, investing in farming equipment. So many improvements helping me craft a constant, quality wine, true to my terroir. I have been practicing organic farming for my whole vineyard since 2017 and I got the official certification in 2020, in hopes of giving back to nature the sustainability it has been offering my family’s wine passion all these years!
