The Milhade family established their roots in the Saint-Emilion region of Bordeaux in 1938, beginning with the historic Château Recougne. Well-known in Saint-Emilion, Château Recougne has produced wines for over 400 years. Its name is said to have been given by King Henry IV in the early 17th century in “recognition” of the fine quality of its wine.
Over the last decades, the Milhade family has solidified Château Recougne and its 247 acres of vines as a leader in Bordeaux Supérieur red wines, though its dry whites and rosés are also renowned for their high quality and immense aging potential. Each generation of the Milhade family was raised among these vines, living and breathing winemaking since childhood.
