Château Fougas is a family estate that dates back to the 18th century. Since the late 1970s, the married couple Jean-Yves and Michèle Béchet have been there. Back then the soil was very bad, so they have spent many years cleaning it and making it what it is today. They have been organic since 2007 and biodynamic since 2009. They produce quality wines characterized by the minerality of its terroir. These are very "pure" and unique wines.
