Chateau d'Aiguilhe is today one of the most beautiful estates of Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux on the right bank of Bordeaux. During the Hundred Years War, this chateau served an important role as a fortified agricultural exploitation. Today entirely dedicated to viticulture, the property has belonged to the Comtes Von Neipperg vineyards since 1998.
The Chateau d'Aiguilhe vineyards extend over almost 90 hectares in the heart of the Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux appellation. The vineyard is exclusively planted in clay-limestone and clay-loam soils.
