The story of Château Roland La Garde begins way back in 778.

From the top of a hillock, Roland, Charlemagne’s nephew, threw his javelin into the waters of the Gironde. Thus proving his courage and strength, he set off on an expedition, forming the rearguard of Charlemagne’s armies. Killed in Roncevaux, he was buried in Blaye together with his famous Durandal sword and ivory horn. On his 28 ha family property, everything starts with the vines for Bruno Martin. The perfect harmony between man and his land is evident everywhere, and the wine is the fruit of passion and emotion.
