Château de Roquefort

The Château de Roquefort has passed hands many times since it was built, now under ownership by Raimond de Villeneuve. The history of the chateau has a rich agricultural past, and was also involved with the old silk worm production. Today, winemaking is the primary focus for the chateau. The 25 ha of vineyard are located on the edge of Bandol in a sort of ampitheatre on clay and limestone. This affords the vines their own microclimate and grapes are slow to ripen at the altitude of 1000ft.
