Closerie Saint Roc

This 16 ha estate, located just a few hundred meters from le Puy in the town of Puisseguin, once belonged to Amoreau ancestors. It was acquired in 2012 by the family. Closerie Saint Roc allows us to offer different wines, but made according to the same philosophy.



Our plots of semillon were used to produce sweet white wines during the pre-phylloxera period. Today they give Marie-Cécile and Marie-Elisa. These are our oldest vines with over 70 years of average age.

The pond

Created in the 1950s, using le Puy spring water, this is another essential feature of our ecosystem which attracts a variety of flora and fauna. Horsetail, nettles and other species grow naturally around the pond.


The sheeps

The sheeps are an invaluable, natural and rapid solution to manage the grass which grows between the rows and at the foot of the vines. Within a few days, everything is clipped and tidy, without the need for a mechanical mower !


The springs

Le Puy possesses three natural springs, which the Amoreau ancestors used before the arrival of the public water network. In 2020, we implemented a solution to reduce our public water consumption and manage the estate’s water resources. Thanks to the natural springs and a catchment and filtration system (ram pump and reed bed filter), le Puy is self-sufficient in terms of its agricultural and wine-making water needs.

The horses

We were among the pioneering wine estates to reintroduce animal traction. Our four-legged team currently consists of five members, Unique, Théo, Spirou, Goulue and Lola, who work alongside us in respect of the soil and bring their human co-workers a great deal of joy.

The cattle

Our Limousine cattle enjoy a great life ! Why do we keep cows ? Just like the sheep or the horses, they contribute to the diversification of the environment around the vines. We also produce our own "500" preparation from their recycled horns, an element which is crucial to the micro-biological development of the soil and the strength of vine roots.


The bees

Le Puy produces its own honey thanks to the beehives on the estate. Whether oak, vine or acacia honey, it’s always absolutely delicious ! Above all, the bees are valuable allies for the pollination of the surrounding plants and vines, and they contribute to the diversification of future wines.


The orchard

Since its very beginnings, le Puy has fostered symbiosis between plant and animal species. Our orchard, which includes apple, pear, plum, apricot, medlar and quince trees, attracts a wide variety of insects.


The insect haven

On the plot located below Les Rocs, we grow our own medicinal plants, such as valerian or yarrow, with which we make the decoctions that serve to boost the vines’ natural defences. It is also the perfect spot to foster the presence of insects on the estate.

The cromlech

Our estate boasts several curious features, the most intriguing of which is the cromlech. This series of megalithic standing stones is a unique feature in South-West France. A circle of standing stones around a central stone, all placed between two dolmens, it is believed to date from the Bronze Age (about 3000 to 4000 years BC). The people who erected this mini-Stonehenge recognised this site, nestled in the heart of an oak forest, as a place of strength, life and well-being. For us, it testifies to the life that has always filled our land and lies at the heart of our philosophy.

Les Rocs

The vines that surround our family home on the estate are beautiful and healthy. They form a historical and exceptional ensemble from both a geological and biological point of view. We call them "Les Rocs" and they provide us with our wonderful Barthélemy vintage. In fact, they are so remarkable that we even applied to the INAO [French National Institute for Origin and Quality] for their official recognition as an exclusive designation of origin (AOC) under the name "le Puy".

Coteau des Merveilles

Our ancestors had observed the particularity of this mythical location, which they named the Coteau des Merveilles (the Hill of Wonders) because of the great finesse of the wines they produced from certain areas here. This renown spread to the greatest vineyards and the merchants of the time regularly called on our wines to "enhance" those of the famous châteaux in their appellation. This method replaced the "hermitage" technique (also known as "doctor" wine).

le Puy

Located at the top of the most prestigious clay and astéries limestone plateau on the right bank of the Garonne, le Puy dominates the Dordogne Valley. At an altitude of 107m, it is the second highest geodesic point of the Gironde department. This position lent its name to the site as of Roman times ; le Puy means a high place, a podium or mountain peak.
