A Noble House through the centuries

Château Haut Peyrat

The first life of the castle

The history of Château Haut-Peyrat is ancient and it was  historically renowned as a wine-producing property.

Its architectural profile and its production have evolved over time and through the various owners. The château was the home of several noble families, including the Dalesmes de Saint Clément and the Lassime, members of the Bordeaux Parliament.

Different parts of the building such as the dovecote, the well and the lower parts of the property dates from the period of Henri IV and then Louis XIV. The date of « 1571 » is engraved on the well and "1655" engraved on the principal front door.


The wine-growing history of the Château is mentioned in the first editions of the famous Féret guide. It is indicated that the vineyard was known as early as the 17th century. The quality of its soils and the hillsides exposure of the vines are already underlined.

After a few improvements at the beginning of the 19th century, (creation of an acroteria masking the roof and the addition of two crenellated turrets on the front facade), the property gradually fell asleep. The whole building and the land, without the necessary maintenance, sank into oblivion until 2014.


Takeover by the Gil Family : Isabelle and Didier Gil were keen to wake up this beautiful sleeping place. Major work was then undertaken to highlight all the assets of the estate.


In 2014 and 2015, they commit thermself to the restructuring of the vineyard and the creation of a tanks and barrels cellar. In 2016, the outbuildings are rehabilitated. From 2017 to 2021, the mansion is completely renovated. Then, much attention is paid to the gardens.


After 9 years of important restoration works, the domain has regain its past glory.
