The history of the Château de Bonhoste was born around 1895, when the BUSSIERE family arrived at "Bonhoste", locality of the commune of Saint-Jean de Blaignac, where the CHABERT family already resides since the end of the XVIIIth century. Over time, the two families continue to grow their terraced vineyards. It is Bernard FOURNIER, grandson of Mrs BUSSIERE, which brings together in 1977 the two properties. With the help of his wife Colette, they decided to develop this family patrimony, by discovering the fruit of the work of a whole generation. In 2005, Sylvaine and Yannick FOURNIER, daughter and son of Bernard and Colette, take up the torch.
This is obvious: the quest for quality is part of the everyday life of the winemaker. The implementation of guarantees in terms of hygiene and sound dietary practices and traceability are essential today. Château de Bonhoste and Château La Moulière adhere to the Qualenvi organization, which is the certification process of the Vignerons Indépendants de France.
It thus undertakes to apply the requirements of the Qualenvi reference system on all of its activity: from viticulture to sales, including winemaking.
Established since February 2012, environmental certification is a tool that contributes to the objectives of ecological and economic double performance of the agro-ecological project for France. It takes into account criteria relating to biodiversity, phytosanitary strategy, water management and fertilization.
