In 1998, with a desire to fully explore and express the potential of the Lirac terroir, the Brunel family (of Château De La Gardine in Châteauneuf Du Pape) bought the forty hectare Château Saint-Roch estate in Roquemaure where they produce a selection of red, white and rosé wines. It is Eve Brunel, also the oenologist for Château De La Gardine and Brunel De La Gardine, who runs the property.

The parcels of vines that produce the Chateau Saint-Roch Lirac Rouge are located on the sandy limestone slopes of the mountains of Saint Géniès, at a height of around 300 metres. Some of the plots planted with old vines have particularly good exposure and produce beautiful and exceptionally concentrated grapes. The wine they produce is aged for 12 months in second and third fill French oak barrels.
