Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion AOC is a red wine only AOC on the right bank of the Bordeaux region covering the eponymously named commune (see below). The AOC dates from 1936 and is the smallest of Saint-Émilion’s four satellite AOCs. The delimited area is bounded to the south by the Barbanne stream across which lies the Saint-Émilion AOC, while on the other three sides it is bounded by the Montagne-Saint-Émilion AOC. From 1974 growers have been able to use either the Montagne-Saint-Émilion AOC or the Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion AOC.
