Château
Rochebelle

Saint émilion grand cru

A family jewel wonderfully located on the high part of the Saint-Emilion limestone plateau. The profile of its wines, its monolithic underground caves and its superb view over the Dordogne Valley together give Rochebelle a very special attraction. A real favourite with wine lovers!

Château
Rochebelle

It was back in 1992 that Philippe Faniest launched a wine tourism project that would go on to create a dynamic change at the château. A true wine estate tour in every sense has been developed for enthusiasts. It features some great views over the countryside and visits to monolithic caves aesthetically set off by magnificent plays of light.

Private tours can also be organised for individual customers and wine tour businesses. Open April to November, 7 days a week; December to March, every day except weekends.

Catering can be organised for groups of 25 persons and more.

Opening times: April to November, 7 days a week.
