The Vignobles Raguenot history

Founded in 1967, Raguenot Vineyards thrives today because of the pioneering and visionary minds 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 Château des Tourtes in the Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. All four are changing careers, and with their different experiences and talents, each of them earn their diplomas in viticulture and oenology and step into the winemaking arena.

It’s in 1998 that our four musketeers acquire Château Haut Beyzac in the Haut-Médoc appellation. With their skills, their motivation, and above all, their passion for the world of wine, they strive to gain a strong reputation at international levels through continued regularity in work ethic and impeccable quality. Their commitment to the winemaking profession has awarded them more than 100 medals over 25 years, and has them featured in numerous press articles each year.
