The winery is located in the municipality of Beychevelle in the area of Saint-Julien in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). It has a very eventful history, having been divided and merged several times over the centuries. Viniculture was already practised here in 1693. At that time the estate was called Serançan and belonged to a Marquis de Cheverry. In 1767 it was acquired by the Baron de Saint-Pierre, who gave it its present name. After his death, it was divided between his two daughters, but was classified together in fourth place (Quatrième Cru Classé) in the 1855 Bordeaux classification. After some changes of ownership, Léon Sevaistre acquired one half in 1892, so that by the end of the 19th century there were two families of owners with the two labels Château Saint-Pierre-Sevaistre and Château Saint-Pierre-Bontemps Dubarry
