The vineyards of Rayne Vigneau lie on a splendidly sited ridge, and have overlooked the Sauternes region ever since the estate was founded in the early 17 th century.

Gabriel de Vigneau appears in the title deeds as from 1635. His son Etienne married Jeanne Sauvage, the daughter of the owner of Château d'Yquem, and took over active management of the estate in 1681.
