Château Puybarbe is located in the commune of Mombrier in the heart of the appellation “Côtes de Bourg”. Three lines of hillside on the right bank of the Dordogne River made that this wine producing region is called “the small Switzerland”. In this way, place called “Puybarbe” is perched in one of the most peak of the third line and offers a unique panorama over Bordeaux. Château Puybarbe is owned by the Orlandi family since 1952. At the beginning the vineyard was composed by only 7 hectares. Today, it is 32 hectares planted in vines. In 2000, Château Puybarbe grew up… the owners built a cellar and a fermenting room to entirely produce their wine by themselves.
