The Chateau de Raissac is located near Beziers, on the border of the Orb river, between plain and hills. It was built on a Roman villa and has played an important role in the region’s history thanks to its location and its owners. In the year 2000, a major Neolithic graveyard was discovered in its vineyards, archeological proof that people lived and worked on this land 6000 years ago. Chateau de Raissac It was during the XIXth century, a prosperous period when wine provided wealth to many families in the region, that the Chateau de Raissac became the imposing neo-classical building we see today. Jean and his wife Christine Viennet, the sixth generation of owners, have lovingly restored the domain. Jean Viennet is also an artist. Christine Viennet, an internationally renowned ceramicist, has founded an important Museum of ceramics in the beautiful old stables of the Chateau where art and wine go hand in hand. Today, their son Gustave Viennet and his wife Marie take care of this large domain of vineyards. The wines are exported internationally (Asia, Eastern country, Europe, Russia, USA…). They welcome you warmly in their guest rooms.
