Chateau Pagnon is just part of a vineyard ownership. I think I know where you read it had been a prison but it's not true. The author had not even the most basic historical knowledge. Her hero is supposed to have been imprisoned there under the control of an officer of Napoleon at a time when France was ruled by Louis 18, and every stronghold in France was on royalist control ! The whole story is just a fantasy. Don't look for historical knowledge in  historical romances.

My expertise is focuses on Military and political history, but I`ll take a crack at anything.
