Bruno Rochard is a French winemaker that took over his father’s 30 hectare domaine in Loire Valley in 1998. He worked tirelessly to convert the domaine into a certified organically-farmed vineyard in 2009. The three main varietals Rochard works with are Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and Grolleau, and some of his vines are up to 100 years old.
Over time, Rochard reduced the property to about one-third of its original size, making the vineyard much more manageable for just one person. Rochard prefers to be very hands-on, particularly in the vineyard. He is actually more hands-on than most producers we see. His dedication can be appreciated and enjoyed in every bottle of wine he makes. We love these wines and we hope you will too.
