The French wine trading company was characterised by two families, the Borie family and the Castéja family. It was founded in 1870 in Pauillac by Pierre Borie in Pauillac under the name "Négociant Borie". His sons Eugène Borie (1862-1911) and Emile Borie (1865-1940) continued the wine trade, but then began to produce wine from their own vineyards in 1901. Eugène's sons Francis (1890-1953) and Marcel Borie (1892-1961) renamed the company "Eugène Borie Frères". In 1932, the brothers bought the then undivided Château Batailley. The brothers then decided to separate in 1939. The Castéja family owns 100% of the shares in the company, which is one of the largest and most important in the Bordeaux and international wine trade.
