Through this acquisition from the company Old Town, Domaines Rollan de By becomes one of the most important properties of the Medoc, both for the quality of its wines and its size - 200 hectares of the exceptional terroir around the area of By. Domaines Rollan de By is now one of the leaders of the Crus Bourgeois. Domaines Rollan de By implemented a rational way of culture that respects the environment as much as possible and return to traditional viticulture without excluding new technologies when they provide quality benefits. A minutious daily care is given to the maintenance and development of our vineyard.
