Chateau La Patache, takes its name from lieu-dit where the vineyard is located. A small, Right Bank estate, Chateau La Patache was first owned by the Larroucaud family in the 1800's. Members of the Larroucaud family also owned Chateau Lenclos, another Pomerol vineyard until 2006. Eventually, an investor group, La Dillegence, purchased La Patache in the 1980's.

They sold the property to Peter Kwok in 2011. The Vietnamese born, Peter Kwok, owns several Right Bank properties today, including Enclos Tourmaline in Pomerol, Chateau Tour Saint Christophe and Chateau Haut Brisson in St. Emilion, as well as Chateau Enclos de Viaud, in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation. By 2015, things were improving at Ch?teau La Patache, due to efforts in the cellars and vineyards. In 2016, the label was completely redesigned and modernized.

The small, 3.18 hectare vineyard of Chateau La Patache is planted to 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. The terroir is sand, gravel and clay soil. The vines are on average, 25 years of age.When Peter Kwok first purchased the estate, they had vines in a few locations, the best of which was located, exactly across the street and right in front the house of Chateau Clinet.
