Rhône Valley, France

Domaine La Roquete is owned by the Brunier family. Of course, as you know, the Brunier family is most famous for owning course, Vieux Telegraph. The holdings of the family also include vineyards in the Gigondas appellation. Frederic and Daniel Brunier took over the vineyard after their father, Henri Brunier purchased the estate from Rene Laugier. The property takes its name from one of the lieux-dits where their vines are planted, Roquete. The vineyard is 30 hectares of vines located in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. 26.2 hectares are used for the red wine grape varieties.

However, it is important to note that only 12 hectares are used to produce Piedlong, the red wine of la Roquete. The remaining vines are now placed in Vieux Telegramme. 3.8 hectares are used to plant grapes to make their white Chateauneuf du Pape wine.
