A STORY OF A GREAT TERROIR AND DEDICATED MEN
- Château Rocheyron takes its name from its location, Rocheyron. Sharing a boundary with Château Laroque along one side of the estate, its history is linked with that of the neighbouring vineyard, classed as Grand Cru Classé.- In 2010 Silvio Denz, a co-owner of Clos d’Agon in Spain (Catalonia) and Peter Sisseck, the oenologist of Clos d’Agon, indicated their interest in buying Château Rocheyron under the AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.-Peter Sisseck is a native of Denmark, who came to the Bordeaux winegrowing region to spend some time with his uncle, an oenologist. Having gained a degree in agricultural engineering, he settled on the Ribera del Duero in 1990, as consultant oenologist to a major winegrowing estate.
In 1995 he created the estate Dominio de Pingus and his first wine, Pingus. In 2007 he added the project Bodegas y Viñedos Alnardo. In 2010 he returned to the region from which he had set out, to carry out research into traditional and innovative winemaking. Château Rocheyron gave him the opportunity to rediscover the characteristics of the great wines and terroir of Bordeaux.
