Domaine Lafond Roc Epine

This estate is named after a famous French race horse of the 1960s, Rocquépine, a favourite of winemaker Pascal Lafond’s father. Pascal Lafond is now in charge of the vineyard, assisted by his son Jean-Baptiste who will assume full responsibility in due course, as this is a family run operation.

The current winery was constructed in the 1970’s and has been considerably extended over the years to accommodate all the wine from its 85 hectares. These are spread over multiple parcels in four appellations; Lirac, Tavel, Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape. Every plot of vines is worked organically, without the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides.
