At the end of 2015, Domaine de Saint Hilaire was sold by Anne and Jonathan James to Nick and Lisa Kent.
Saint Hilaire boasts an international reputation as being one of the first estates in the Languedoc to plant noble varieties in the 1970’s under the guiding hand of Mr Hardy, the previous owner.
The vineyard produces a wide range of varietal wines, currently selling over 100 000 bottles per year.
Jean Hughes Matteini has been hired to manage operations and drive the vineyard forward. Mr Matteini is very familiar with the role, having previously managed Mendoza vineyards in Argentina.
