Coteau rougemont, a family story
Because the apple never falls far from the tree, the Robert family, well rooted in Rougemont for decades, materialized their dream and brought together their passion for wine and their experience in apple-growing to create Coteau Rougemont.
The Robert family
When the Robert family acquired this enchanting site, they were unknowingly fulfilling an old dream of Rosario, father of Claude and grandfather of Michel, Julie and Isabelle. Truck driver and apple grower, Rosario used to stop with his truck on the top of the hill to admire the view and cherished the desire to own this orchard and to be able to enjoy the view as he pleased. It was with the same values of the land that Claude approached his children to share his dream, his vision. Together, the family decided to purchase this large orchard and plant a few thousand vines in order to embark on the fabulous adventure of wine growing. This is how the Coteau Rougemont vineyard was born in 2007. From the planting of the first vines to today, the development of the vineyard has been done in a spirit of quality and pride.
