Château de Barbe extends over 66 hectares from the top of the hillsides to the Gironde estuary. This proximity to the Gironde provides a microclimate favorable to the cultivation of vines. The Savary de Beauregard family owned the château until its acquisition in 1993 by the Richard family, already owners in Côtes de Bourg.
