The unique terroir of Provence is perfectly expressed in each Roquefeuille wine. When acquired by the Berenger family in 1976, the domaine included approximately 50 acres. Today, the Roquefeuille estate encompasses approximately 250 acres in the heart of Provence at the foot of Mount Olympe, the Monts Aureliens and at the South of the Sainte-Victoire valley, the terroir includes clay and limestone. Practically all the vines are exposed to our region’s bright sunshine in order to optimize the
grapes maturity. The estate practices minimal intervention in order to preserve the domaine as well as the environment. The terroir is a mix of clay and limestone pebbles and sand caused by erosion from Mount Sainte Victoire.
