The historical roots of Château de la Roulerie stem from a 14th century knight, named ‘Chevalier Raoul’. This is supposedly where the château takes its name from. Local legends posit that this knight constructed the basis of the château that still stands today. Obviously, it can be hard to verify this with complete certainty, but when the legend becomes fact, print the legend.

Today, there are 42 hectares of vineyards, which are overseen by winemaker Philippe Germain, who has been making wine in the region for just over 20 years. Between him, and his brother Thierry, they are forces to be reckoned with, for making exceptional, yet accessible organic wine, which stand as examples of Loire Valley wines which express ‘nervosité’.

The Loire Valley is also dubbed ‘The Garden of France’. This is due to the sheer number of vineyards, cherry orchards, forested areas and farmland which line the banks of the river. The Loire Valley could really be the wine destination for you, if you’re keen to get back to the basics in life. Breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit. Be more one with nature, than the grapes in your glass!
