In 1877, Auguste Roche had his crops completely destroyed by phylloxera. Whilst many growers in the area gave up after the phylloxera crisis, he replanted in American rootstocks only for them to be destroyed by severe frosts in 1956. Rene Roche decided to replant in 1966 and planted Auxerrois, Merlot and Tannat . Jean Roche is the fourth generation and decided to carry on in his family`s footsteps by taking over in 1987 after working as an Oenologue
