The property has belonged to the DORNEAU family for several generations, going back to 1870. At the beginning, Madame Viaud, who believed in the development of the Fronsac Appellation, bought several small parcels to form the first of properties, the Château LA CROIX. In 1949, her niece, Jeanne, inherited the property and bought with her husband a second one, the Château ROULLET, classified in Canon Fronsac. In 1960, their son, Michel, bought the vineyards of Château PONTUS. Today, Patrick, the son of Michel, manages all the vineyards and participates in the collective management of the Fronsac and Canon Fronsac wine appellations and in the collective management of the truffle production from “gironde”.
