Xavier Weisskopf founded Le Rocher des Violettes in 2005 having studied winemaking in Chablis and Beaune and completing a degree in oenology and viticulture. He began to work at Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas and was quickly promoted to chef de cave.
Xavier acquired old vine site parcels in Montlouis, mostly planted pre-WWII, with some parcels reaching 120 years old! He immediately converted his 13 hectares to certified organic viticulture and all grapes are picked by hand. The results are beautifully textured, individual dry wines with bags of personality and laser precision.
