Château de REIGNAC is ideally situated at the confluence of the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers (the “Entre Deux Mers”). REIGNAC offers a unique quality, that of reuniting the best types of terroir of both the Right and the Left Banks in a single estate.
Reignac offers the best Bordeaux quality price ratio, confirmed by blind tasting by European Grand Jury and scores awarded by the world’s leading tasters. Qualitative consistency of our wines results from our obsession for quality and our great terroir.
The original Château was built by Seigneur Baude de Peyron in the 16th century. Remodeled in the 18th and 19th centuries. A remarkable greenhouse was designed by Gustave EIFFEL, the man who created the tower that bears his name in Paris. Yves and Stephanie Vatelot, purchased REIGNAC in 1990 and have worked continuously ever since to restore the state to its former glory while introducing numerous innovations. The very talented Michel Rolland is their consulting oenologist.
