Vignobles Raguenot History

It is a beautiful family history that carries on, today.
Founded in 1967, Vignobles Raguenot thrives thanks to the pioneer and visionary spirits of Lise and Philippe Raguenot.
In 1997, their two daughters Emmanuelle and Marie-Pierre associated with their respective husbands, Daren Miller and
Eric Lallez, take over the domain of Château des Tourtes in the appellation Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux. The four of
them made a career move, and thanks to their experience and talents, they launch a new career as winemakers, after
training in enology and viticulture.

In 1998, our four musketeers acquire the domain of Château Haut Beyzac in the appellation Haut Medoc. Backed by their
competencies, their motivation and most of all their passion for the wine industry, they apply themselves to increase
their international notoriety thanks to a rigorous attention, regularity in their work, and an irreproachable quality. This
is how they have acquired a recognition that has never been denied, since the creation of Vignobles Raguenot. They have earned more than 100 medals over the past 25 years, as well as numerous press articles that honor, every year, their commitment making wine.

Vignobles Raguenot now represents more than 100 hectares in the Bordeaux vineyard.

Vignobles Raguenot the Wineries

Vignobles Raguenot, a family of independent winegrowers who work and live for one and only passion: the meticulous
creation of wines.

Located in Saint-Caprais-de-Blaye, in the Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, Château des Tourtes spreads over
64 hectares, 15 of which are dedicated to the production of white grapes: Sauvignon blanc (80%), Sémillon (15%)
and Muscadelle (5%). The remaining part of the vineyard is dedicated to the red grapes: Merlot (72%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14%), Malbec (7%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Carménère (1%).
On a silicious-clay soil with a gravely subsoil, the Raguenot family elaborates a classic cuvee in white, red and rosé, as well as a prestige cuvee in red and white. The Attribut des Tourtes is the Vignobles Raguenot’s jewel, with a parcel selection to obtain the essence of Château des Tourtes’ savoir-faire.
In the appellation Haut Médoc, Château Haut Beyzac is located in Vertheuil, on 26 hectares. Enjoying an exceptional geology with a clay-limestone soil, the vineyard is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, the preferred varietal in Medoc, as well as Merlot and Petit Verdot. Three distinct cuvees are imagined and elaborated according to different methods of vinification, maturation and blend of grape varieties.
Today, Château Haut Beyzac offers three wines with all their subtlety, freshness and complexity.
