Located 120 kilometres inlands from Rabat, in the foothills of the ATLAS Mountains , the region of Meknes, by virtue of its altitude, its amount of sunshine and its mild temperatures, is the favourite country for vineyards in Morocco.
Cradle of the Designation of Geographic Origin (AOG) areas of GUERROUANE , BENI M’TIR and of the Designation of Controlled Origin (AOC) area of "LES COTEAUX DE L’ATLAS", this region concentrates today more than 60% of the Moroccan wine production. Therefore, it came naturally to LES CELLIERS DE MEKNES to settle in the heart of those vineyards.
Apart from controlling vineyards over almost 2000 hectares, managed by a team of professionals loving earth and their trade, LES CELLIERS DE MEKNES are the owners of winemaking equipment located in the centre of the vineyards, combining together tradition and modernity. Last significant achievement of LES CELLIERS DE MEKNES has been creating the first Moroccan CHATEAU officially inaugurated in June 2004 –CHATEAU ROSLANE.
With the introduction in Morocco of noble varieties of vine, like CABERNET SAUVIGNON, MERLOT, SYRAH or even CHARDONNAY, the use of oak barrels for ageing, and with the creation of the first and only Moroccan AOC, LES CELLIERS DE MEKNES were always eager to brandish with pride the colours of a long Moroccan wine tradition.
With men and women passionate by their trade, always willing to elaborate original and quality products, LES CELLIERS DE MEKNES, are today undeniably on display as far as it considers the know-how and the passion both deep-rooted in tradition.
