Domaines Uijttewaal is located in the heart of the Médoc in the Bordeaux region. They were created by a family with Dutch roots in the 80s.

 

This prestigious estate is known for its strong commitment to eco-responsibility and the high quality of its red wines but also its Blonde d'Aquitaine meat.  Château SAINT-HILAIRE is the first vineyard planted by Adrien Uijttewaal in 1982 in JAU DIGNAC LOIRAC, on deep gravelly hillsides overlooking the Gironde estuary.

 

He chose the name "Saint Hilaire" because it echoes his native village in Limousin and the Saint of the village of Queyrac where he decided to vinify his harvest from 1995 directly at the property to create a powerful wine, all in finesse and elegance.

 

Château Saint-Hilaire was classified Cru Bourgeois in 2003 and Cru Bourgeois Supérieur in 2018.
