Farming ancestors have been found for at least 6 generations on this family wine-growing estate in the Bordeaux region. Since the beginning of the 20th century, the great grandparents, then the grandparents of the current owner Régis Chaigne, have been farming land and vines in Cantois on the one hand (paternal line) and Saint Laurent du Bois (maternal line).
Régine and Jean-Claude, Régis' parents, specialised in vine growing from the early 1970s, selected their terroirs, replanted the best parcels with the red grape varieties of the Bordeaux region: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. They modernized the winemaking equipment and bottled red and white Bordeaux for the first time in 1975, for a clientele of friends who grew by word of mouth.
Régis joined his parents in creating "Vignobles Chaigne et Fils" with them on January 1, 1992. He continued the development, acquired new plots, developed sales to professionals, modernised the winery and gradually set up a team: today, 8 people work on the estate.
