Our History

Since 1789,
Château Panchille belongs
to the Sirat family.

Pascal took the lead of the vineyard after the death of his father, Fernand. Passionate, he rebuilt a new winery, developed and modernized it to recreate this estate destroyed due to history and time passing by.

Pascal fête en 2018 sont 40ième millésime.

In 2018, Pascal celebrates his 40th vintage. Julie-Alix and Fernand, his children, are very important for him.
They are the future. Pascal doesn’t stay focused on the past!

Les vendanges à Panchille en 1900

At the beginning, the estate was 22 hectares and owned several chais at Arveyres. They didn’t use tractors but horses to help.

The way to work the vineyard was very different than nowadays. Some will say that we were in “bio” and lot of them might refuse to work like this due to the hardness of that work.
