A beautiful country manor house nestled in the heart of a magnificent 3-hectare park, in the shadow of the bell tower of the old Roman church, Château Fourcas Hosten is situated in the centre of Listrac, a peaceful village in the eponymous appelation.
In 1810, Mr Hosten, who inherited the vineyards from his father, a lawyer in Bordeaux, ceded the vineyards to the Saint Affrique family who created Château Fourcas Hosten and brought it international renown. Renaud and Laurent Momméja have been the new owners since September 2006.
Recognised as one of the bourgeois Great Growths on the Médoc peninsula, Château Fourcas Hosten produces a wine whose balanced blending has always been hailed a success. Dedicated to the dynamics of progress, the Momméja family and their team have undertaken concrete steps targeting the improvement of the existing structure, the buildings and the 47 hectares of vineyards.
