Domaine  de  Rocheville - Profile

At the foot of the medieval church in Parney, on the hillside overlooking the loire are the vineyards of Domaine de Rocheville. Domaine de Rocheville is one of the most recently created Domaines in the Saumur Champigny Appellation. Philippe Porche, a wine enthusiast, had been searching for a vineyard in the area for several years. In partnership with Jerome Callet, a local young wine producer, they finally found their estate in the medieval village of Parney.  Together with Agnes Porche, Phillipe's wife, they make a great team. Phillipe is the driving force, Jerome takes responsibility for the day to day care of the vines, while Agnes has brought a woman's touch to the concern.

Rocheville is a Boutique vineyard in the exclusive Saumur Champigny Appellation of the Loire valley comprising 16 hectares of vines, at least 30 years old, producing 90,000 bottles of top quality wine a year. Rocheville seeks to reveal fully the characteristics of the Chenin and Cabernet Franc grape varieties. The vines are treated in such a way that respects the natural needs of the plant as much as possible. Grass is allowed to grow in the vineyards to encourage the vines to send their roots deep down into the limestone rock. Hedges have been planted in the vineyard to favour biodiversity.

The grapes are harvested completely by hand to ensure wine of the best quality is produced in the traditional way. Rocheville's rule is to harvest the grapes at the perfect stage of ripeness and to produce a wine according to the characteristics of the vintage. The wines are matured in oak or in vats, depending on the style of wine required. A range of wines are made from a single grape variety, Cabernet Franc for red and rose wines and Chenin for white wines.
