Chateau Le Thil

 

 

The Château le Thil is the 3rd estate of the Hubert family who own and operate Château Peybonhomme Les Tours. The vineyards lie on the banks of the Gironde river in the Côtes de Blaye. Jean-Luc and Catherine Hubert are the fifth generation in Catherine’s family to own and operate Château Peybonhomme Les Tours. Their son Guillaume, a nature lover with a passion for flora and fauna, joined the family business in 2007 after completing environmental and ecological studies. Having qualified as a pharmacist, his sister Rachel chose to join her brother in 2012 and together take up a new challenge, primarily based on producing high-quality natural wines.  The family farms and make wine from Peybonhomme, Chateau le Grolet, and the Chateau le Thil estate. These estates combined represent the largest certified Biodynamic estate in the Côtes de Blaye.
