The history of the Roy-Trocard family begins nearly 400 years ago, in 1628.
It was in this year that the family acquired its first vines in the locality of Libourne. Since 1628, each generation has produced a wine-grower; the vineyards handed down through fifteen generations of the men and women of the Roy-Trocard family.
Over the years, the family has built up 70 hectares of vines spread over three properties and four appellations :Château Jeandeman in AOC Fronsac, Château Laborde in AOC Lalande de Pomerol, Château Mancèdre in AOC Pessac-Leognan and La Piecelle in AOC Bordeaux Superieur.
For the last twenty years, the vineyards of Roy-Trocard have been cultivated using sustainable viticultural methods.
The objectives of this approach are:
• To promote a viticulture which both respects the environment and is economically viable.
• To maintain bioversity in the viticultural ecosystem.
• To preserve and encourage the long-term health of the soils.
• To assure the production of high quality wines.
In order to do this, we endeavour to use only naturally occurring treatments for both our soils and our vines.
