Vignobles Raymond produces the highest quality AOC Bordeaux organic wines. Located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, not far from the city of Bordeaux, their wines have grown in the villages of Saint-Laurent-du-Bois, Saint-Martial, and Saint-Felix de Conclude since medieval times. The Raymond family has a long history of growing wine, dating back to 1850.
The family property of the domaine du Château de Lagarde has been built up over the years by successive generations. Today, the winery honors its heritage by using a special mixture of ancestral tradition and the most efficient modern technology.
In 2000, Lionel Raymond purchased Château Joumes Fillon (an organic vineyard). Because of Lionel’s strong beliefs in and respect for the environment and terroir, he decided to convert the whole vineyard (130 hectares) to organic agriculture. It was a quite a bet, and most winemakers in the area thought he was pretty crazy. Today, they are one of the largest organic wineries in Bordeaux.
