Born on the crisis of 1929, the Cave de Rauzan movement knew how to impose its values of humanism and solidarity in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers area. It was in 1933 when wine growers built a common wine storehouse which 70 years would become the first French winery. Thanks to its past, the Rauzan winery have kept their love of well made wine and the need to forge ahead.

Bordeaux is the largest vineyard for appellation wines in the whole of France. Situated in the South West near the Atlantic, it is crossed by the rivers Garonne and Dordogne and enjoys a temperate maritime climate. The richness, the quality and the diversity of its wines derive from the particular character of the terroirs, the experience of the winegrowers and the art of blending. The tide, which flows up both of the region's rivers, brings very specific characteristics to the wines. With its huge size, Bordeaux reds offer an infinite palette of flavors and combine their qualities in myriad different ways.
This estate owned by the family Sahunet for many generations is located on the hills overlooking the Dordogne River. The vines are covering 50 acres of hilly alluvium and clay land with ideal sun exposure.
