Arriving from N580 (easiest way to find it) you will find two domains (in one building it seams) Chateau Saint Roch and Domaine Oualou / Vignobles Assémat 
When
the buildings were erected
they constituted one domain, but after the deaths of a owner the heirs could not find a better solution than divide the cellar 
by building a wall inside to create two zones. Today, the two owners
from different families live well together, but there were certain disputes in the past.
Arriving from Roquemaure, you only see Saint Roch, and you
will only discover the other domain, if you seek for it looking around a corner.
