Wine tastings

Wine tastings
If you are more eager for a taste experience than an explanation of the world of wine, opt for a tasting! In the shop, on the terrace in summer or by the fireplace in winter, we are always happy to share a privileged moment of exchange with you around our passion for the “divine nectar” and let you taste our new vintages.
If you have more time in front of you, and a lot of questions, then you have the choice between several visits.

Reservations are not required but are recommended during the season.

The classic visits

« In the footsteps of La Jouvencelle »

Visite Jouvencelle

Curious to visit a Val de Loire wine estate? The visit “Sur les Pas de la Jouvencelle” allows you to discover the eco-responsible Rocheville winery and the secrets of the winegrower, from the vinification to the maturing of the wine. It ends with a commented tasting of our vintages accompanied by local gourmet snacks.

Guided tour of the winery + tasting
Duration: approx. 45 minutes

« In the footsteps of La Dame »

Visite Dame

Lovers of wine and nature will enjoy walking “Sur la Pas de la Dame”. This is a complete tour, from the vine to the bottle, which first takes you to a plot of land on the estate to discover how the vines are worked in organic farming and then to the winery where the guide will tell you about our wine-making and ageing techniques. It concludes, of course, with a tasting of our wines, with nibbles to match.

Guided tour of the vines and the cellar + tasting

« In the footsteps of Le Roi »

Visite Roi

If the phenomenon of “troglos” intrigues you as much as the mysteries of wine, follow the visit “Sur le Pas du Roi” from the cellar to the vat! It begins underground by exploring the troglodyte cellars dug into the tufa/limestone and continues on the surface, in the cellar, with explanations of the artisanal vinification and maturing of the Rocheville wines/vintages. Conclude in style with a commented tasting of our different PDOs and local specialities in harmony.

« The "special biodiversity" visit »

Visite biodiversité
The “greenest” of Rocheville’s wine tourism services is a mine of information for wine and nature lovers interested in the biodiversity in the vineyards. Accompanied by a guide, follow on foot the vineyard paths that lead to the estate’s plots on the Parnay plateau. The route is about 3 km long and can be walked by all types of people. Stay on the lookout for fauna and flora while enjoying the superb panoramas. Your guide will explain how the vines are worked according to the principles of organic farming, help you to read the landscape and identify the signs of animal and plant biodiversity, each time different depending on the time of day and the season!
When you return to the estate, all that will be left for you to do is taste the wines from these plots to complete your nature outing.
