Art at Vignelaure
Georges Brunet has created the new cellar in 1972, so then he decided to build the underground art gallery that connects the old cellar with the tanks dug in the stone to the new wine warehouse.
As an Art lover, he invited well-known artists to spend time in Château Vignelaure. That is why the Art collection has become so exceptional :
César, Buffet, Cartier-Bresson, Arman, Lartigues, Miro, etc …
It is also at this age that, for each vintage of Château Vignelaure red, two artists (a writer and a designer) participated in the creation of an original back label (in Mouton Rothschild spirit).
In 2007, Mette and Bengt Sundstrom (owner of the auction company Lauritz.com) buy Château Vignelaure. Art lovers and collectors, they carry on the tradition. They bring new pieces to the underground Art gallery and above all, they install imposing pieces of art in the garden and the reception hall.
Mette and Bengt Sundstrom also offer to some artists to come at Vignelaure. Thereby, sculptors, painters, singers-composers can stay in the vineyard and be inspired by the place to create. Thus, Poul Kreps (singer-composer from Denmark), friend of the Sundstrom family, create the famous song Spirit of Vignelaure.
