For the benefit of the Domain Raymond labored seven generations of a family. Over the past twenty years there have been major changes since it was decided to send all the forces only in the cultivation of the vine and wine production, completely abandoning the cultivation of other crops. In the period from 1980 to the year 2000 the vineyard area nearly tripled - from 25 to 70 hectares, and in 2000 through the purchase of estates Joumes Fillon it increased to 107 hectares. When the head of the Domain became Lionel Raymond, began to be used organic methods of cultivation of the vine. Currently domain Raymond is one of the largest wineries in Bordeaux, in possession of five possessions, which are located in three communes: Saint-Laurent, Saint-Martial and Saint Felice de Fonkod. Their total area is 130 hectares. For export annually supplied 35% of the produced an average of 800,000 bottles a year.
