Roman History at Domaine Les Roques de Cana

The vineyards of Domaine Les Roques de Cana is one of the original plots planted after the Roman invasion of Gaul more than 2000 years ago. As it was described by Virgil in the 1st Century BC, the Malbec grape had the reputation of making the best wine of all the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus. Its colour is deep with purple and dark blood tones.

2000 years of History

Cahors has been making it for more than 2000 years. In the 3rd Century, it was the only vineyard allowed to replant in Gaul on the order of Emperor Probus. Cahors wine remains closely linked to the history of the Christian faith, it has been the wine for mass in the orthodox churches for eight centuries. The village of Roques, in its very name, is, as can also be the village of Rocamadour, a direct reference to the image of the Woman of the Apocalypse protected by the rock of the river of water spewed by the dragon. Wines of Cahors were for the King of France François 1er considered “the Best Wines in the World”. The King even chose a winemaker from Cahors to grow Malbec vines in the castle of Fontainebleau.
