The winery is located in the municipality of Talence in the Pessac-Léognan area in Graves (Bordeaux). Its origins date back to 1540, when the nobleman Louis de Roustain sold the Arrejedhuys vineyard to the wine merchant Arnaud de Lestonnac. Lestonnac was the husband of Marie, the sister of Jean de Pontac (1488-1589), the owner of the neighbouring Château Haut-Brion. The Lestonnac family owned the two Haut-Brion vineyards for a time and later also Château Margaux. The Château La Mission Haut-Brion remained in family ownership until 1664. In that year it was transferred by Catherine de Mullet to the Catholic Lazarist order "Mission Saint-Vincent-de-Paul". During this period of spiritual possession it received its present name. The president of the order, Père Simon, subsequently helped the estate to flourish.
