The Roger family descends from a long line of winegrowers from the village of Bue_. The first written mention of the name dates back to the 17th century. Up until the 1960s, generation after generation practiced mixed farming and animal rearing - the husband would look after the vines while the wife would care for the goats. Jean-Max Roger took over the 4 hectares of vines that his parents had left to him in the early 1970s. With his wife Nicole, they focused on the vineyards and developed the estate to make it what it is today.
Located at the heart of the village of Bué, the buildings have evolved along with the development of the estate. The oldest structures date back to the early 17th century; part of the winery was once one of the village’s tithe barns.
As the surface area of vineyards increased, the buildings were expanded in order to house modern equipment. Our most recent renovation enabled us to reorganize the winery, and in particular improve conditions for receiving the grapes.
Thanks to our installations and working methods that ally new techniques with respect for traditions, we are able to craft our wines under optimal conditions.
