Winemaking Experts of Bordeaux Since 1949
Born out of a cooperative winemaking movement in France, Producta Vignobles is a collective of over 2,500 winegrowers who create wine from 50 appellations in the Bordeaux region, with industry-leading expertise in winemaking for over 60 years.
Producta Vignobles spans four great terroirs around Bordeaux: central Bordeaux, Bergerac, Saint-Émilion, and Medoc. The vineyards cover 24,000 hectares of wine grapes and include 150 exclusive châteaux. Producta Vignobles controls the creation, blending, testing, winemaking, ageing, and packaging of the wine, allowing the winemakers to develop quality wines that express the terroir of each appellation.
Creating Wines True to the Region
Producta Vignobles produces over 20 million bottles of wine a year, with each stage of the winemaking process managed by a team of experienced experts. It begins with careful growth and cultivation of the vines throughout the year. Then, grapes are vinified according to their character and region under the management of cellar masters. Wines are bottled within each terroir to avoid extra traveling. Finally, blind tastings ensure the taste of the wine corresponds perfectly to what is promised by the grape variety and appellation.
With a range of signature châteaux and carefully made wines from different terroirs, Producta Vignobles produces high-quality bottles that please many palates and regularly receive awards and critical acclaim.
Originally based in Bordeaux on the banks of the River Garonne, Benoit Valérie Calvet has a long history of producing great French wine from this region and beyond. Recently, they began producing and offering wines from Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, under their BVC Rhône label. The De La Rougerie collection is a tribute to an ancestor, Madame de la Rougerie, an icon who embodied elegance, curiosity, and flair.
