The Chateau de Rolland is likely one of the oldest properties of BARSAC – from the 15th century. Afterwards, the wine region officially obtained its own designation of origin. The winery was obtained in 1492 by the family "de ROLLAND", who kept it until 1796. Six different families ran the winery between 1797 and 1971. Since then, the GUIGNARD family works the 20 hectar vineyard that lay around the winery.
The area of Chateau de Rolland, close to the Garonne River, has a very fertile and sandy soil for one part of the estate. For the other part, the soil is gritty and located above a naturally well drained, cracked subsoil.
