1.The roots


On the right bank, the Trocard family has lived to the rhythm of the vine for 4 centuries. It has taken root there and deploys its know-how across.

A first acquisition in 1621, and then the great wine adventure of the Trocard family began in 1628.

Old parchments dating from this time bear witness to the winemaking past of the paternal branch, Trocard, then established in Fronsac, while the maternal branch, Renard, had vineyards in the “Petit Faurie”, a district of Saint-Émilion.

At the end of the 18th century, the family came together in Artigues de Lussac. The family will remain forever attached to this place, where it established its headquarters, thus maintaining an indelible historical link with Artigues.

Among the recent generations, Jean Trocard personally experienced several centuries of agricultural techniques. He started working the land with oxen, then on horseback, before acquiring his first tractor after the war. “The cattle, I was fed up with them! They had to be looked after, even on Sundays!”

In 1976, his son Jean-Louis Trocard took over management of the family vineyards, bringing a breath of fresh air. With his wife Elisabeth, he built up the outline of the vineyard we see today.

Vignobles Trocard grew considerably over the years and now has around a hundred hectares spread over several appellations.

From Saint-Émilion to Pomerol and including their satellites, there is a long family history on the right bank.

In 2002 Benoit returned to France from Australia, to join the family business.

He put his body and soul into Artigues, where he took over the vinification for Vignobles Trocard in 2010 and then overall management in 2018.

After the builders and the visionaries,Benoit has taken on the role of winegrower-merchant.

Present from the first bunch cut to the last vat pressed, he is a living testament to history who carries high the values of his land.

It is up to him to continue the work of his father, his grandfather and his ancestors by continuing to produce excellent wines that reflect their terroirs.

A guardian of the family’s past, his dynamism and involvement only improve the quality of the wines.

A history that now lives on under the stewardship of Benoit Trocard. Combining tradition of the land, sensitivity to the present and an innovative spirit.
