In 1531 Jean de Pontac, owner of Château Haut Brion, acquired Chateau Perron after witnessing its potential to produce great Graves wines. Today this lovely estate is owned and managed by the Guignard family, wine growers since 1610 who are now the leading vineyard owners in the Graves region. The company is run by the three Guignard brothers, Bruno, Dominique and Pascal, who are recognized as true specialists of the Graves appellation. Dominique Guignard is the agricultural engineer who studied at the Ecole Superieure d’Agriculture de Purpan and worked abroad in the United States before returning to his family’s winery in 1990.
He is currently the President of Graves Appellation, following in his father’s footsteps, and established the Route des Vins de Bordeaux, Sauternes and Graves. Bruno Guignard, who joined the family operation in 1992, serves as oenologist, having received a Masters in Wine Management from the Bordeaux Institute of Oenology. Pascal Guignard, who holds degrees in viticulture and oenology and then gained practical experience in Stellenbosch, South Africa, joined his brothers in 1996 as quality control engineer.
