Our story

17th century Domain creation date The vineyard of Rayne Vigneau sits on a magnificent hillside overlooking the Sauternes region since the creation of the estate at the beginning of the 17th century. Le Vigneau de Bommes named the vineyard, the Château, the Seigneurie and the de Vigneau family, who were the first to hold it. Gabriel de Vigneau appeared in the writings as early as 1635. His son Étienne married Jeanne Sauvage, daughter of the Lord of Yquem, and personally took over the estate in 1681. Madame de Rayne, born Catherine de Pontac, bought the Domaine du Vigneau in 1834. The official classification of 1855 places the Vigneau among the first growths of Sauternes. In 1867, the big broker Daney gave it first place immediately after Yquem. It was Albert de Pontac, Madame de Rayne's little nephew, who gave his name "Rayne Vigneau" to the property. Investments and considerable work have been made by successive owners to improve the quality of the wines. Today, the château embodies a sure value of the appellation claiming, year after year, a style full of intensity, freshness and length.
