1823: the Esquissaud family acquired the estates of Châteaux Faugères and Péby Faugères.
1987: The land was inherited by Pierre-Bernard Guisez. Up to then, all the wine produced had been sold to a single local merchant. P. Guisez and his wife Corinne wanted to become more involved in the vineyards, setting out on a quest for the finest quality. Their wish was to see these exquisite terroirs become jewels in the crown of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, a desire that was to be fulfilled in a short time with the help of Michel Rolland.
From the 2000 vintage onwards, the Château Faugères and Château Péby Faugères wines have taken a place of distinction among the very best. Robert Parker described the Péby Faugères as one of the "24 best Bordeaux wines" and "legend of the future".
In March 2005, the property was acquired by Silvio Denz - a perfume designer, lover of fine wines, owner of Lalique and of two wine merchants in Zurich, as well as Switzerland's largest wine auctioneers, "Denz Weine"
