The people who make the wine
Winemaking requires knwoledge, attention to detail, sensitivity and, as many things, a little bit of luck, because we have to deal with natural elements and the surrounding ecosystem. We are attentive to our vines: we watch them, we take care of them, we adapt to thier needs. We watch over both the winemaking and the planting of grape varieties according to the soil.
"In order to make a great wine, you need a lot of common sense and good taste"
All the efforts of the men and women who have been working here for many years, some of them forever, play a part in the making of Château Lafon-Rochet. To give nature a chance to produce the best it has to offer, we ensure that we plant the right variety in the right place, combining a thorough knowledge of our soils with intuittion and collective experience. Nature, often fickle, requires our constant attention to be tamed. Only together can we create an exceptional wine.
