Situated at the crest of one of the most beautiful hillsides of the parish of Bayon, the Chateau Falfas is truly "the glory of the region of Bourg"*

In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, this handsome estate belonged to the Lords of Lansac, ancient nobility of the sword, swearing allegiance to the English crown.

At that time, the wines of Falfas were exported with privilege to the courts of the Edwards. Later, in the seventeenth century, the domain was acquired by the Sires de Riveaux to whom we owe the pure Louis XIII architecture of the present building.

At the end of the seventeenth century, the property came into the possession of the family of the President of the Parliament of Guyenne, Gaillard de Falfas, who restored the chateau and gave it its name.

Today the present owners and winemakers, John and Véronique Cochran, build upon the traditions of the past to maintain the historic reputation and prestige of Chateau Falfas.
