Château Saint Hilaire Wines



Newcomer to Bordeaux, Dutchman Adrien Ujittewaal settled in the northern Mêdoc near the village of Queyrac and planted some vines. Later he bought a parcel of 30-year-old vines to supplement his holdings, although until 1994 he simply sold his grapes to a local co-operative.

Taking the plunge with making their own wines in 1995, Saint Hilaire invested in both cellar and expertise, bringing in consultant oenologist Eric Boissenot to oversee the important part of blending.

Producing wines that balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in almost neck-and-neck quantities, the efforts paid off, being raised to Cru Bourgeois status in 2003 (since retained).
