The winery is located in the municipality of Talence in the Pessac-Léognan area of 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. Château La Mission Haut-Brion remained in the family until 1664. In that year, Catherine de Mullet transferred it to the Catholic Lazarist order "Mission Saint-Vincent-de-Paul". It was during this period of spiritual ownership that it was given its current name. The chairman of the order, Père Simon, subsequently helped the estate to flourish.
