Château Pontet Reynaud
An outstanding example of quality from a top producer in Bordeaux, France
Early in the 20th Century, a cooper named Daniel Subervie began acquiring small parcels of land in the Graves District of Bordeaux. His subsequent family continued his work and today Vignobles Reynaud owns some 100 acres of vineyards both in Graves and also in the Bordeaux Superior AOC’s. The family’s fifth generation of vintners, in the persons of Fabrice and Philippe Reynaud, guide the company’s portfolio of award-winning wines in international competitions.
An ultramodern processing facility was completed in 2009 making Vignobles Reynaud a world class facility. Château Pontet Reynaud first saw light in the early 1960’s and has become one of the leading wineries in the district. The winery makes both a red and white and has won much notoriety and numerous awards for each. White Graves have always been the flagship wines for the region and this marvelous white is a typical example of quality from a top producer.

Fabrice & Philippe Reynaud - Winemakers
Both Reynaud brothers carry the title of winemaker for their family’s Château Pontet Reynaud, but it is Fabrice who has followed the modern approach to his craft. He holds a master certificate from the Institut des Sciences de la Vigne in Bordeaux as well as a summer stint at UC Berkeley where he learned English as a second language. Philippe Reynaud began working with his father Pierre in 1998 after “viti-vini” (loosely, natural wine) studies and shares the winemaking responsibilities with his brother. Aided by its state-of-the-art winemaking facility, Château Pontet Reynaud has ascended to the upper ranks of the Graves Region châteaux, a most noteworthy achievement.
