Our historie

The Château Hourtin-Ducasse vineyard, located next to Pauillac, produces a Haut-Médoc. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, two former owners, Mr. Hourtin and Mr. Ducasse, gave the wine its name. In 1976, Michel Marengo bought it and now manage it with his wife and their 7 children.

The vineyard stretches on 25ha cultivated using conservation agriculture techniques that take advantage of the biodynamie and the biological agriculture methods. « Beside our determination to preserve the richness of our terroir and to respect the environment, we believe that we will that way improve the quality of our wines”. While revealing the purity of the fruit, their wine is characterised by his elegance and balance. The last 32 vintages have received 132 awards.

Ready for a walk in the vineyards of Haut-Médoc? Come and visit us at home! To tell and share our wines, we welcome you at our Wine Bar, in the middle of the barrels, or, if the weather allows it and if you prefer, in the middle of our vines. Sitting around a plate of local products, we will taste several vintages to allow you to compare your feeling on the different expressions revealed by the magic of our terroir. Will you be seduced by the length of 2011, the aromatic complexity of 2014, the elegance of 2016? Anyway, everyone has his own preferences, but all have fun! Depending on the season and availability, we will continue with a nice thirst wine, our rosé, Les Roses de Marie; and finally, we will introduce you to our latest creation, noGGIN, a spirit that reflects the freshness of the garden.
