Château La Tuilière was one of the first wineries in the Côtes de Borg region and is known affectionately as "little Switzerland" of the Gironde. La Tuilière is in the village of Saint-Ciers-de-Canesse, on the Gironde estuary around 40 kilometres from Bordeaux. The estate is comprised of 13 vineyards over 20 hectares of clay-limestone soil. These vineyards hose 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec. They produce these three reds as well as Rosé. 

The vineyards and estate have been family owned since 1616. For three generations the Regaud family have grown and bottled at this unique property, their estate has become renowned for great wine. 

In 1929, Jacques Regaud, a student and a lover of viticulture started research on the best terroir for making great wines. In the heart of his work was the study of the best harmony between terroir and grape varieties. From here he went to plant the great Bordeaux grape varieties. Unfortunately, Jacques died in battle during the Second World War, leaving the property and passion for wine to his son Jean Pierre. 

In 1979, Jean started working to equip the Château with a more modern winery, with stainless steel tanks and the latest in winemaking technology. From this ambition the winery, and amazing wines were born.  
The vinification tales place in traditional, smaller vats. The cellars are partially underground, a feature that's characteristic of the region. A three to six week period of cold pre-fermentation maceration takes place prior to vinification. The Ageing process then takes place in French oak barrels as they produce more traditional wines. For the more modern wines they use oak chips in thermo regulated containers. This preserves the light nature of the wine demonstrating the company's willingness to keep up and respond to market demands.
