Built during the Fourth Crusade era by the English, Chateau de Panisseau lies not far from Bergerac, in the heart of the Périgord Pourpre (Purple Perigord), some 5 kilometers east of the Bordeaux wine producing region. It covers 106 hectares, with 65 ha of vines and 41 ha of arable fields, woods and grassy meadows.

The chateau, which history goes back to middle ages, gives a strong impression with its watch towers and lovely high ceilings. It lies majestically amongst the vine and the different buildings of the estate.
