Vina Punto Alto, Michel Laroche’s Chilean property, is situated in the Casablanca Valley. The wines are made with grapes grown in vineyards located in the Casablanca, Maipo and Colchagua valleys. To ensure the wines are of the utmost quality, the principals of Laroche spend a generous amount of time in the vineyards and winery of Vina Punto Alto. By doing so, Michel is able to apply the same style and characteristic standards as his Chablis, Southern France and South African properties and create Chilean wines with balance, elegance and fresh fruit flavors.
|The name Domaine Laroche is virtually synonymous with Chablis. With a history that dates back to 1850, when Victor Laroche purchased his first parcel of land in Chablis, the Laroche family has been dedicated to producing top-quality wines from the region for five generations. Michel Laroche, the great-great-grandson of Victor, joined the family business in 1967, and today remains at the helm. Under his stewardship, Laroche has become one of the most respected producers in Chablis and is one of its largest landholders of grand cru vineyards. Purity and quality are the heart of Michel’s winemaking philosophy as exhibited by the wines produced at Domaine Laroche.
