The history of Saint-Georges goes back to Gallo - Roman times. The estate has changed hands several times since the French Revolution until it was bought by Petrus Desbois in 1891to be used as his summer residence. Since then it has remained a private family home and vineyard, carefully nurtured by each generation. The first Petrus Desbois resuscitated the beleaguered vineyards by grafting French vines onto American rootstock. Then in 1945, his son Petrus Desbois took over and it was under his stewardship that Saint-Georges began producing a world-renowned wine. Today, his son Georges Desbois presides over the estate, and creates well-balanced, elegant wines, celebrated for their ability to age.
 
‘...smoke and cigar box tinged bouquet with ample black fruit. The palate is medium bodied with sappy black fruit, well integrated oak, well-judged acidity and a poised and elegant finish. What a delicious Château Saint Georges this should be, one that should give a decade of pleasure once in bottle.” 90-92 Points Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
