History

In the heart of Listrac

A beautiful Charter 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 Mommeja 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 Mommeja family and their team have undertaken concrete steps targeting the improvement of the existing structure, the buildings and the 47 hectares of vineyards.

Since 2008 the following massive projects have been undertaken within the property:

  • The renovation of 3 cellars: the winery, the storage and  barrel rooms,
  • The renovation of the Charter house,
  • Restoring the vines in certain plots.

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.
