Nestling in its green setting, Château Peyrabon is suddenly revealed as it suddenly emerges from the perfectly aligned rows of vines. For more than 20 years, the Bernard family has put all its passion and energy at the service of this pearl of the Haut-Medoc, magnificently situated on a gravelly hilltop a few kilometres from Pauillac.
In the heart of the Médoc, Château Peyrabon is built in the middle of its vineyard, where an avenue lined with vines leads to this magnificent Renaissance-style building. This art was first born in Italy and then gradually introduced in Europe. In France, it was discovered during the battles against Italy in the 16th century.
In 1821, four towers were added to the manor house, proudly raising the Château towards the sky. It is dressed with a superb slate roof which, in fine weather, reflects the sunlight and makes it sparkle. After nearly 250 years, these simple and elegant forms are still very much alive today.
