Château de Rayne Vigneau

  • Bordeaux


Château de Rayne Vigneau was founded at the beginning of the 17th century by the Vigneau family who ran it first. Records about Gabriel de Vigneau have been discovered dating back to 1635. Jeanne Sauvage, Lord Yquem’s daughter, married Gabriel’s son and took over the domain in 1681.  Mrs de Rayne then bought the property in 1834. Her grandnephew gave it the name of Rayne Vigneau. Today, it is managed by Vincent Labergère.  Since 2007, Château de Rayne Vigneau has adopted sustainable agricultural methods to respect the environment. To produce their sweet wine, the domain cultivates Botrytis Cinerea, also known as “noble rot”. This rot appears every autumn near the Ciron river and pierces the skin of the grapes. A natural process that increases the concentration of sugars in the juice.  Their wine can be enjoyed young or kept in the cellar. Château de Rayne Vigneau remains a unique and intense wine, it has great value.
