Pitray has been owned by the same family for the last six hundred years.

The XVth century feudal manor built by the Prieurs, was rebuilt in the XVIIth century by their descendants, a branch of the powerful Ségur family, whose only daughter married her neighbour Elie de Simard, a former mayor of Saint Emilion, in 1715. In 1868, General Louis de Simard de Pitray had the present castle built by an architect from Bordeaux named Blaquières. This impressive building in « Victorian Gothic » style, is surrounded by a park featuring century-old oak and cedar trees.

The present heirs, Count and Countess de Boigne, endeavour to combine family traditions and progressive solutions in order to maintain their ancestors’ heritage and pass it on to the next generation.

Jean de Boigne, their son has been in charge of selling Pitray wines since 2003, as its quality is ever more acknowledged throughout the world.

As early as 1969, his grand-father, Louis de Pitray, began modernising the estate and established long-standing commercial relationships with the United Kingdom and the United States. Since then, Jean have opened up markets in Canada, Japan, China, Switzerland, Belgium and Denmark ….. without, of course, neglecting their private customers (including restaurants) in France.

In this age of globalisation, it is rare to come across a long standing family venture which succeeds in this competitive world.

Pitray is open to all those wishing to learn more about our wine or, indeed, to enjoy the magic of this estate and stay in one of our recently renovated spacious guest rooms.
