A vineyard in the heart of the Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation

Here you are! You've just arrived at Château La Rose Perrière, greeted by the warm smile of Thomas Romero, our wine tourism steward, who guides you to your room. It's customary at La Rose Perrière to be immersed in the beauty of the surroundings from the very first moment. So we usually suggest you visit the vineyards as soon as you arrive, once you've settled into your new quarters. It's time to take a tour of the property, to discover the gardens where flora and fauna coexist to allow biodiversity to blossom. Yes, biodiversity is encouraged, enriched and considered on a daily basis in the upkeep of the vineyard, because it is beneficial to our vines and ultimately to our wines.

The symbiosis of nature and culture has been the Sylvain family's goal for many years now, and our HVE certification and new organic designation are just a few testimonies. That's why our gardens are home to over 200 species of flowers, shrubs and trees, including fig, apple and olive trees, as well as chickens, ducks, geese, goats, bees and pigeons. Of course, this rich biodiversity is particularly amazing in spring, when the diversity of colors is a delight to the eye. During your visit to the gardens, you'll be told the story of the Sylvain family: you'll learn everything that led this family of coopers to take their turn in promoting the terroir of Lussac-Saint-Emilion in the early 2000s.

A tour of the vineyard would be incomplete without a visit to the heart of the winery, where La Rose Perrière's magic is at work. The process of vinification and ageing of our wines in barrels and casks will be explained to you, so that the tasting that follows will hold no secrets for you.
