Vorhartung Castle was a much grander residence than the threadbare Vorbarra House, so Lord Vorbarra moved in with his bride rather than the other way around.  Upon her death, her son and heir, a Vorbarra, took possession of his mother's properties, including her (and thus his as her son) ancestral home.  Fast-forward to the unification of Barrayar under Dorca and by that time Vorhartung Castle is the ancestral home of the Vorbarras, so of course that's where he rules from.
