Château Valandraud is a wine estate in St-Emilion on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. It was founded in 1989 by husband-and-wife team Jean-Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud.
The couple started out with a small 0.6-hectare plot of vines on the outskirts of the town of St Emilion. Their early vintages were famously produced in a small garage in the town, making Valandraud one of the first vins de garage and Thunevin himself a high-profile figure within the garagiste movement – a small band of Right Bank producers making high-octane, concentrated red wines made from low yields and in tiny quantities.
The pair have expanded their holdings over time, notably purchasing and renovating a winery in St Etienne de Lise, as well as expanding the size of the vineyard considerably. Valandraud has since 2012 been ranked a Premier Grand Cru Classé B in the St Emilion classification.
