The Château Puybarbe has existed for several centuries, as evidenced by an engraving of the castle and the park, quoting "The old appanage of Peubarbe, the tales of Savignac - Gironde 15th century".
Vineyards were planted in the Roman times on the hillsides, but the oldest proof of winegrowing activity in Puybarbe dates from 1895, through an act of sale of the property. The Orlandi family has owned the estate since 1952 and the process of change of ownership of the Chateau to Riku and Anna Väänänen was agreed in the fall 2017 and finalized in October 2018.
