Château de Rayne Vigneau is open to the public
The 1st Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes comes to wine tourism
Chateau de Rayne Vigneau is located in Bommes. It was created in the early seventeenth century by Gabriel de Vigneau. In 1834 the winery was bought by Catherine de Rayne. Thereafter, one of his descendants, Albert de Pontacs renamed the property “Rayne Vigneau“.
The Bordeaux Grands Crus classification of 1855 ranked the property among the top wines of Sauternes. In 1867, the well-known Daney (Bordeaux wine broker) ranked it in first place 1st Grand Cru.
Currently the Château de Rayne Vigneau (1st Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes) is owned and operated by CA Grands Crus (this group is also the owner of the Château Meyney). It extends over 84 hectares (207ac) in one piece on a wide rump dominating the Sauternes area. Its terroir of sandy gravel reveals astonishing wealth, agates, sapphires, rock crystals, heralding a precious/great wine.
