Construction works at the Castle
A the end of XIXth century
After purchasing the domain of Fines Roches, Henri-Auguste Constantin (1845-1910),  first owner of the castle, got his inspiration not only from Avignon ramparts but also from the castle at the top of the village. He design a neo-medieval façade, of meridional influence, around which a large winery is expanding and where he replant a vineyard. 

He wanted the Fine Roches to be a model of all those who followed the french wine-growing.
