Chateau d’Arche is one of the older estates in the Sauternes appellation. The property was founded by its namesake Henry d’Arche, in 1580. Over the years, like many Bordeaux wine producers, the estate was divided and sold off at different times to a wide array of owners.

At one point, it was known as Chateau d’Arche-Lafaurie-Peyraguey, due to the fact it was shared owners with Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey. In 1996, a new drainage system was installed in the vineyards. In 2005, Chateau d’Arche was sold by the Perromat family to an investor group.
