Château Moncontour used to belong to Tours' bishop in the Fourth century. It became lately a King’s property when Charles the Seventh, King of France, built it back in the fifteenth century for his mistress: Agnès Sorel.
It burnt during the 1789 French revolution. Later on, the famous writer "Honoré de Balzac", a Moncontour's lover, tred to acquire it with a mistress and future wife "The Stranger" Miss Hanska.
He did not succeed, but thanks to his famous Novel « La Femme de Trente Ans » (A Woman of 30), Château Moncontour will stay Forever.
Since 1994, with the same passion as their predecessors, the Feray Family never stopped to revamp the vineyard and to improve the winemaking cellar to make Moncontour vineyard one of the most beautiful and renowned of the Loire Valley.


Located in the Heart of the Vouvray « Appellation », Château Moncontour stands proudly and oversees the Loire River.
