Château des Roques lies on the rocky plateau of ‘Des Roques’, a hamlet on the outskirts of Vacqueyras. Owned and run by the Seroul family since 1997, the estate is managed traditionally using natural fertilizers, tailored treatments and harvest is done by hand. Eclipsed to some extent by the wines from its more illustrious neighbours, Gigondas and Chateauneuf, Vacqueyras has plenty to offer and deserves to be much better known. View our selection.
The vineyard covers 38 hectares and has an average age of 40 years old vine. It is planted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre for the reds and Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Bourboulenc and Marsanne for the whites.
