A brief history
The Bellanger family is the owner of the Château Roquefort since 1976. They manage this estate of 106 hectares of vine located 20 kilometres from Saint-Emilion with passion since 44 years.
Château Roquefort is an estate steepedrooted in in history. The origins of the name Roquefort date make to the Middle Ages:
Roca Forte means a rocky outcrop. However, the history of Roquefort began more than 6000 years ago!
The Château Roquefort estate covers 240 hectares (including 100 hectares of grape vines) at the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers between the Garonne and the Dordogne, in a magnificent region known by some as ‘little Tuscany’. Hills and steep slopes around a limestone plateau offer the perfect setting for grape vines to flourish.
The wines of Château Roquefort reflect the extraordinary diversity of the Entre-Deux-Mers terroirs. Our red wines express the roundness and power of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The white wines possess the freshness and minerality of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, whilst the rosés are harmonious gourmet wines designed for pleasure. The Roquefort spirit is first and foremost a taste for work well done, ombined with a desire to protect the environment and to produce sustainable wines with the “Haute Valeur Environnementale” certification and in the process of obtaining organic farming certification.
