A brief history
The actual château was built after the French Revolution by the Dupeyrat family, who lived there for nearly a century. At the end of the 19th century, the vineyard was devastated by phylloxera and sold to our family, who renovated it and have kept it ever since.
Located on a plateau, Château Barbé has an incredible sun exposure, meaning that grapes ripe earlier than those on the other Bayle Carreau properties. This soil is extremely well-suited to winegrowing and the impeccably-kept vineyard is a fine example of sustainable viticulture.
