This estate that belonged to the PONTAC family during the 16th century, took the name of Pontac-Monplaisir in 1985. In 1920, M. August MAUFRAS buys the estate whose surface was 50 hectares. During world war two, the estate was neglected: and it is only in 1955 that the reconstruction of the vineyard and cellars was undertaken: plantation of noble grape varieties were led such as the renovation of the tank cellar and barrel cellar. After these renovations, château Pontac-Monplaisir started to be bottled at the estate.
Today, the vineyard is 16 hectares big, within 13 for the red wine and 3 for the white wine. Alain MAUFRAS is today at the head of this estate.
