Colgin Cellars - Winery - The Team

The Team

Alain Raynaud

Dr. Raynaud’s lineage in wine production dates back to the 15th century with his family winery in Bordeaux. Though he left the industry to pursue a career in medicine, he returned in 1998 to craft some of the most sought-after small production wines from Bordeaux, including La Fleur De Gay and La Croix De Gay in Pomerol and Chateau Quinault in St. Emillion. More recently, he and his wife Francois purchased Chateau du Parc in St. Emillion. Formerly the President of the Union des Grand Crus de Bordeaux, Alain has been President of the Cercle Rive Droite de Grands Vins de Bordeaux, a unique organization created to further the quality of the wines of the Right Bank, since its inception in 2002. His dedication to neo-classical winemaking techniques and attention to detail are the perfect complement to the Colgin team, where his expertise is exclusive to Colgin Cellars in Napa Valley.
