The estate gets its name from a magnificent 12th century feudal Périgourdin castle, refurbished during the Renaissance and bearing witness to a rich winemaking history. The origin of the name Panisseau has vegetal origin, as it refers to a field of Panicum.

Carefully preserved by the different owners, it was enhanced by the Grimoard de Panisseau family, the Alba family and later on the de Laur family.
In the twelfth century, when Chateau de Panisseau was founded, documents first appear certifying the importance and location of the vineyards.

It is now the property of a European investment group whose primary objective is to restore the former glory of Chateau de Panisseau by enhancing production, as well as promoting the brand internationally, offering value-added services to its guests so that no one can forget his visit to Panisseau.
