Producer Details

Xavier Weisskopf founded Le Rocher des Violettes in 2005 having studied winemaking in Chablis and Beaune. 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.
