Château Puyfromage is owned by four brothers (Yves, Francis, Philippe and Frédéric Marque) from a family whose ancestors were coopers, cellar equipment manufacturers, wine growers and wine merchants.
Their grandfather, Abel Albert, acquired Château Puyfromage in 1943.

Local history tells us that the name Puyfromage comes from the French “puy” (plateau) and the English “from edge”.

Environmental approach: Château Puyfromage is committed to an environmentally friendly approach in order to make the most of the authentic expression of its terroir, its grapes and its wines.

All the work of our team is in line with this perspective and is permanently based on two axes: quality and the environment.
