Along with Montagne, Lussac and Puisseguin, one of the four communes, all of which are located outside the Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux) appellation, just north of the Barbanne river. These four may also use their name on the label, in this case Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion. As a special feature, Saint-Georges may alternatively use the name Montagne-Saint-Émilion. The vineyards cover around 200 hectares. The red wines are predominantly blended from Merlot, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pressac(Cot) and are similar to those from Saint-Émilion. Well-known producers are Château Belair-Montaiguillon, Château Belair-Saint-Georges, Château Maquin-Saint-Georges, Château Saint-Georges and Château Tour-du-Pas Saint-Georges.
