Chateau Preuillac is located in the heart of the Medoc. The vineyard covers 30 hectares on a single site. The soils vary with 50% of the vineyard being clay, limestone and gravel soils; 25% gravel soils and 25% sandy-gravel. The average age of the vines is 40 years. The vineyard is managed according to the principles of sustainable viticulture. The soils are cultivated in order to limit the use of herbicides; and sprayings are only used when absolutely necessary. Much of the work in the vineyard is done by hand, such as green harvesting and debudding in order to optimise the quality of the harvest.

Château Preuillac is an imposing château which dates back to 1869 and is located in the heart of the Médoc, 10 kilometres to the north of Saint Estèphe. Preuillac received well-deserved recognition when it was immediately included in the 1932 Crus Bourgeois
classification. Formerly owned by the Mau family, the château has recently been renovated to exacting standards by its new owners including new conical fermenters. The vineyard was planted in the 1970s and covers 30 hectares of sustainably farmed
vines, which winemaker Nathalie Billard skilfully translates into a classic, elegant expression of the Médoc.
