Planted in 1998, the vision for St. Hilaire vineyard was to develop low-yielding, high-quality fruit so
that only the very best grapes go into making our wines. We
spend many hours each week perfecting our wine-making skills and
managing the vineyard. John's hands-on approach comes naturally. When crews
arrive to prune, harvest or shoot thin, John is right out there with
them. His background in biology makes him acutely aware of the
importance of producing quality fruit in order to produce a quality
bottle of wine.
wines created at St. Hiliare Vineyard are hand crafted in small lots.
Each vintage is barrel aged to bring out the complexity and character in
each varietal. Finally, special attention is placed on finding a
balance between the natural fruitiness of the wines, acidity and alcohol
Hilaire Winery currently produces 175 cases of wine per year. As a
small winery we rely on word of mouth and wine club members to grow our
business. We hope you will refer us to your friends and family.
