Pizay is a name that has been around since its name was first mentioned in the charters of Cluny Abbey in 1030. With a A thousand years of history, Gosmard, the first Lord of Pizay, had two towers built around his castle, and his descendants lived in the Château until 1916.

In 1981, Groupama Rhône Alpes Auvergne took over the estate and created the hotel complex which includes a four-star hotel with 64 rooms and a gourmet restaurant. Today, the estate totals 82 ha of vineyards producing grapes for six different appellations and their wines: Beaujolais Blanc, Beaujolais Rosé, Beaujolais Rouge, Régnié, three different cuvees of Morgon and a Brouilly from Château de Saint-Lager.

In 2015, the estate became one of the first two hundred French estates to be awarded European High Environmental Value Certification. They have been adhering to organic agriculture directives certified by ECOCERT since 1996.
