The vineyards of Fourcas are mentioned on Belleyme’s map (geographical engineer of Louis XV). In 1843, the lawyer Jean Baptiste Antoine Dupré, member of the Bordeaux Appeal Court acquired the vineyard and in 1844 Château Fourcas Dupré was born.
The cellars, buildings and “château” were completely renovated. Today, a new fully functional fermenting room and refurbished cellars for storing and packing complement the original ones.
The château now belongs to a family-owned company managed by Patrice Pagès.
The vineyard of Château Fourcas Dupré is located on a crest of Pyrenean gravely soil at an altitude of 42 meters. It is an uninterrupted plot with an average density of 8500 vines per hectare. These days everything is done (vineyard draining, grape varieties adapted to the soil, limited production) to show a perfect example of this unique terroir.
