CHATEAU FOURCAS HOSTEN
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, Chateau 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 Chateau Fourcas Hosten and brought it international renown. Renaud and Laurent Mommeja have been the new owners since September 2006.
Recognised as one of the bourgeois Great Growths on the Medoc peninsula, Chateau Fourcas Hosten produces a wine whose balanced blending has always been hailed a success.
Dedicated to the dynamics of progress, the Mommeja family and their team have undertaken concrete steps targeting the improvement of the existing structure, the buildings and the 47 hectares of vineyards.
Renaud and Laurent Mommeja, surrounded by their team, have devoted an enormous amount of energy, effort, involvement and financial means out of pure passion for this land which produces wines that the team endeavours to make exceptional each year.
As members of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, Renaud and Laurent Mommeja share their passion for wine on a daily basis with all those they meet in France and in the world.
In 2013, Chateau Fourcas Hosten was rewarded for its efforts by two labels : "Vignobles et Chais en Bordelais" and the label "Best of Wine Tourism 2014". Gold prizewinner of the 2017 Best Of Wine Tourism Competition in the "Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices" category.
