The estate is located in the commune of Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse in the Saint-Émilion area (Bordeaux). It had been owned by the Esquissaud family since 1823 and came into the possession of the Guisez family through inheritance in 1987. In 2005, it was bought by the Swiss entrepreneur Silvio Denz, who is active in perfume, cosmetics, crystal, real estate, art trade and wine. He is also a wine collector; his private cellar holds 35,000 bottles of wine. The estate includes other wine estates in Bordeaux (Château Cap de Faugères, Château de Chambrun, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey - one of the famous Premier Cru Classé estates from the 1855 Bordeaux classification, Château Rocheyron), as well as in Spain and Italy. By 2009, Château Faugères had undergone a complete renovation. The cellar, furnished with the most modern techniques, is the work of the famous architect Mario Botta. Michel Rolland and Count Stephan von Neipperg (Château Canon-La-Gaffelière) were engaged as consultants.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
