Domaine de la Barroche


Organic Farming Estate


A family estate of less than 15 hectares, Domaine la Barroche is a veritable capsule collection on the scale of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Diverse soils, rich grape varieties and century-old vines are the hallmarks of this vineyard, which extends mainly to the north and northeast of the appellation.
