The Château de Paillet owes its name to the neighbouring village of Paillet. This very old vineyard was bought in the 18th century by Squire d'Alphonse, canon of the church of Bordeaux. It was subsequently handed down to Adélaïde de Bacalan, to the knight J.-B. d'Alphonse, Counsellor with the Bordeaux Parliament, and to the Countess of Vassan. In the 19th century, it was one of the properties of the Fery-d'Esclands family. It was bought by Marcel and Christian Quancard in 1970. The vineyard, the majority on the highest hillsides of the town, now covers a total area of 40 hectares with 36 under vines.
