Château Cap de Fouste « Grande Réserve »
AOP Côtes Du Roussillon

The estate: Located in the heart of Roussillon, Château Cap de Fouste was founded in 1860 by the Bardou – Job family. Since its foundation, the estate has remained a major place in the history of winemaking in the Catalan countryside. The exceptional sunshine and the Tramontane, this omnipresent Tramontane, sometimes icy, sometimes tropical and suffocating, give our terroir fantastic assets. An incredible variety of soils, stonny terraces, clay and limestone hillsides, gravel, allows them to offer a rich range of products.

Today, It is Sébastien Balaguer, surrounded by a dynamic team, who are continuing the work started at the end of the 1970s by his uncle, Joseph Mas. It is in the respect of history, with an unconditional love for the Earth, by adapting to the climate and with a resolute eye towards the future that he works every day to obtain the best Expression of this Terroir.
