The Picnic at the Independent Winegrower's
Among the events that celebrate the arrival of spring in the vineyard, the Picnic at the Independent Winegrowers is not to be missed. Organised by the Independent Wingrower’s of France, it takes place every year during the Pentecost weekend and Rocheville has been taking part in it since 2018.
The principle is simple: you bring your lunch, and the winegrower provides the picnic area and the wine. Wine and educational activities are also offered during the day. This is an opportunity to have a good time in the middle of nature with family or friends, to have privileged exchanges with the Domaine’s team and to learn more about the terroir and the wine in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Open Doors of Rocheville
Come and meet the whole team who keep the estate alive on a daily basis. Visits of the eco-responsible winery and the vines, which are cared for with respect for biodiversity, are offered. Discovery of local specialities, concerts, “oenoludic” animations, exhibition, tasting of the new organic wines, everything is done so that you spend a pleasant moment of relaxation and in good spirits
Throughout the year, Rocheville offers its exhibition space to artists, often from the Loire Valley but sometimes from further afield, to hang their works and dress the limestone walls with their colours.
In order to vary the pleasures, the estate hosts exhibitions of all styles: realistic or abstract painting, drawing, photography… On the theme of the Loire, local heritage, nature… art brings a different perspective on the riches of the Loire Valley. Our visitors can thus enjoy a double visual and gustatory experience.
It does not matter which form the Art takes, as long as one can delight their eyes… as well as their taste buds!
From 27th March to 9th May 2023

Holidays events : the Summer Winedays
In July and August, come and relax on Rocheville’s panoramic terrace on Friday evenings with our musical aperitifs, the famous “Vins-dredis de l’été” / “Summer Winedays”.
At aperitif time, before sunset, we welcome you for a tasting of our wines accompanied by appetizers in a warm and intimate atmosphere.
And for the pleasure of your senses, while enjoying the scenery, you can appreciate the concert videos of great names on the French and international scene.
Once or twice a year, the Domaine de Rocheville welcomes you in the evening for a themed gourmet tasting: Chenin et fromage, Fou de Chocolat, “Vertical tasting” (different vintages of the same wine)… Wake up your taste buds with surprising or unusual food and wine pairings, taste old vintages, test, compare, exchange your impressions without complex…
