"The cellar of Les Vignerons de Roquemaure is situated in the easternmost part of the Gard department, in the heart of the southern Rhone Valley, 20km north of Avignon, between Tavel and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. We produce wines of the Lirac and Tavel vintages and of the Côtes-du-Rhône, Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Laudun and Gard PGI appellations.
Wine is more than just a kind of food; wine is loaded with history and with emotions; a good bottle is something you share: for all those reasons we put into our bottles some of our heart, of our terroir and of our Provençal sun. Be you in the vicinity or at the other end of the world, nothing could please us more than your being happy every time you open one of our bottles, happy with a simple and shared happiness. It would be the fit reward for all the passion we put into our trade.
We endeavour at each stage in the making of our wines to use as little chemistry as possible: in the vineyards through our sustainable-pest-control group, at the cellar through our programme for the reduced use of œnological products. We are now using only half the sulphur we used to, we are using as little cultured yeast as possible, and we no longer use wine filtering earths. And in 2011 we produced our first vintage made from organically grown grapes. Some of our vintners are taking this path, and we should be increasing the volume of our organically-grown wines in the coming years. We would then be offering you a full range of organic wines."-Rocca Maura
