The roots of the Hervé family can be traced back to 1607. In that year, Jean-Marie Hervé, a sailor from Brittany served the King of France. We are not sure when they bought the Bordeuax wine estate. Records show they began bottling their own Bordeaux wine in 1890! That makes Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque one of the first properties in Fronsac to bottle their own Bordeaux wine. Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque is owned by the Herve family and managed by Jean-Noel Herve.
